This a virtual event.
Keeping yourself clean and fresh is actually a very complex task and serves several very different purposes. Dementia causes changes in perception, memory, sensory processing, mobility and dexterity, as well as perspective, personal values, and relationships that make this task a particular challenge. These webinars will explore the multi-factorial causes, explore possible alternatives and options, and offer specific interventions to optimize the probability of successful and adequate hygiene.
- Describe six possible components that impact bathing practice changes with dementia
- Explore possible modifications to expectations, task presentation and execution, time frame, and environmental supports.
- Discuss behaviors that are supportive versus confrontation when attempting to address and complete the intimate task of cleaning oneself.
"No decision about me, without me."
