Progression of Dementia: How to Help When Behaviors Are Challenging
||Thursday, March 28, 2019
||2:00 p.m. ET
When dementia is involved, challenging situations may occur and could result in significant stress and conflict. However, when a caregiver has a thorough knowledge of what behaviors can arise within various stages of the disease, they are better able to manage these instances and their responses, resulting in more effective and better quality care.
This webinar will provide attendees with an in-depth understanding of the progression of dementia and behaviors that affect caregiving and daily programming throughout the disease. We will use the concept of gemstones to help caregivers appreciate the value and uniqueness of each stage as the condition progresses.
Attendees will understand the importance of using observational and hands-on skills, self-awareness, and environmental supports and modifications to optimize care and decrease the probability of challenging situations for the person living with dementia.
Attend this webinar to:
- Develop a comprehensive understanding of the various stages of dementia
- Recognize specific behaviors associated with phases of progression and techniques for handling them
- Learn methods to practice mindful care for the person living with dementia
Please note: this webinar is a free event, and no CEUs or certificates of participation are provided. All registrants will receive a copy of the recorded webinar and slides if you cannot attend the live event.
