Founder, Positive Approach to Care & World Renowned Expert on Dementia Care
This session is designed to help caregivers and family members develop the knowledge and skills they will need to be effective and ‘on target’ when providing help to someone living with some form of dementia. Emphasis will be on providing attendees with strategies and techniques that are effective in responding to typical symptoms and behaviors of people with dementia as the disease progresses. The session will also focus on how to learn to recognize and accept the changes that are part of this disease’s progression without losing control, giving up on the person or on care provision, or becoming overwhelmed.
