Hey hey hey!!!
It's about 5-6 more days before DementiaHack and I'm sure everyone is gearing up for the weekend.
So I'll introduce you all as well to a few other mentors/judges that are not online here, but will be attending the event. Especially for those taking on CS1 and CS2, you'll like to know who these people are.
If you do your homework ahead of time and learn a few tidbits about them (not timbits ), then you'll be ahead in the game when you have a chat with them Saturday and Sunday.
We start with 3rd time Mentor/judge to DementiaHack...
Bea will be joining us Sunday afternoon.
Both @Mary_Beth_W and @Phyllis_F with Ontario Dementia Advisory Group (ODAG) are very good friends with Bea and you can see a video with all of them here...
The next 2 Mentor-Judges I'll introduce here is a mother-daughter duo coming all the way from Glasgow Scotland. Internationally respected Person with Dementia Agnes Houston will be traveling with her "Care Partner" Donna Houston to do a few presentations in Canada during the month of March. Note that many countries outside of North America prefer the term Care Partner over Caregiver. If you think it through fully, you'll figure out why it is the preference of choice by many to use Care Partner.
