This a virtual event.
The number of male caregivers entering both the professional world as well as the family caregiving world in dementia is increasing each month. Societal expectations, past life experiences, combined with biases and unfamiliarity with changing roles and responsibilities can result in frustrating, risky, and even dangerous situations for all involved. These sessions will explore common concerns and issues and address possible factors that can be modified to improve outcomes and relationships among those involved and those concerned.
- Explore current male caregiving statistics and common issues and concerns associated with males in the traditionally female intimate and personal care support roles
- Compare and contrast male-female caregiving styles and expectations in common dementia situations
- Discuss key elements and options that could be useful in improving interactions and outcomes among team members that include male care providers
"No decision about me, without me."
We've heard many people living with dementia share their thoughts along the journey. In response to their request, Positive Approach now offers live webinar events for people living with dementia. Each interactive event will focus on a specific topic and include open discussions with the group.
Each session is being offered for FREE to those living with dementia. Participants must register to attend. Registration is limited. Registration for the live events includes access to the recording of the webinar. Recordings will be released within a week of the live event.
REGISTRATION FOR EACH EVENT WILL CLOSE 24 TO 48 HOURS BEFORE THE EVENT.
If you have questions or if you don’t see the topic you want to discuss and explore, please contact Corrie Phillips.
