Mindfulness with Older Adults will look at using mindfulness as a tool when working with older adults, especially those who are family caregivers and experience feelings of stress, loneliness and isolation, grief and loss, uncertainty, guilt and/or regret. This course is appropriate for both those who are new to mindfulness/meditation, as well as for those who have a regular practice. The course will also visit how mindfulness can be a benefit at end-of-life, explore barriers and different meditation methods. The course will include online meetings and discussions, assignments and readings; as well as a daily meditation practice and reflective journal, the practice with an older adult (when available), and completion of a two-page paper.
