There are three roles at OMA-thon:
*Elder Artist (no training required) – this role is open to anyone who wants to learn and experience the benefits of OMA first-hand; you don’t need to be elder or an artist!
*Volunteer Facilitator – no experience or art background is necessary, but training is required (it’s free!). You’ll need to commit to attending two 1.5-hour training sessions with SJFS staff before the event on the basics of dementia, the OMA philosophy, and methods and skills for facilitating an OMA session. ***The two dates are Weds, Oct 4, at noon or 5:30 pm (in person at Menorah Park or remote) and Weds, Nov 8, at noon or 5:30pm (in person only at Menorah Park).**
*Observer (no training required) – join us November 12 to see how OMA works
