Connecting the Dots Class Pre-registration Requirements

I require all class members to read and understand Terms & Conditions
and complete a brief questionnaire prior to attending class.

1. Who should attend Connecting the Dots Classes

Connecting the Dots class is specifically designed for family members and friends who are concerned about or caring for someone who is living with any form of dementia.  

2. The person you are caring for must have a medical diagnosis of dementia 

You will be able to tell me about the diagnosis when you complete your questionnaire.

3. The Dots class is not designed for people with dementia to attend. Alternative arrangements must be made for their care while you attend the class.

Due to the limited size, design, and structure of the Connecting the Dots class, we are ONLY able to accommodate the 15 registered family members and friends (caregivers) in each Dots session. The Dots class is NOT designed for people with dementia to attend. No respite care services are available onsite for them during class time. 

If the person with dementia is not safe to be left home alone for you to attend this 2 ½ hour long session, please make other arrangements in advance for their care at home on the day of the Dots class.  Give yourself this peace of mind in order to attend and benefit from the class without worry or interruptions.

4. Register and pay for the class in advance

Participants must register for Connecting the Dots class in advance. If you haven’t registered, you can do so here. I am not usually able to accommodate walk-in class members. You can pay online using a credit card, or by mailing me a check. Details are on the registration page.

5. Complete a Connecting the Dots Questionnaire 2 days prior to class

It’s very important that I understand your unique caregiving concerns and questions before the class. You’ll find a link by the pencil above.

4. Cancellation and refunds

I understand that unexpected things can happen. Please call (303) 875-5508 as soon as you know you need to cancel or reschedule. If you need to cancel and it is up to 7 days prior to your class I can give you a refund. If you’re not within the 7 day window, don’t worry. You can apply your fees toward a later class or other Compassion Works, LLC services such as Dementia Coaching. No online cancellation is available.
