This webinar will offer a how-to look at caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or other dementias.

Family members will learn how this unique approach to person-centered care helps to successfully manage behaviors and positively engage their loved one.

Participants in this web seminar will:

  • Learn to maintain quality of life
  • Receive tips on keeping a loved one engaged and managing behaviors
  • Gain insight into taking care of the caregiver
  • Earn one hour of  *free* continuing education credit by attending the event and completing a CEU survey
