Version of This Event

Alzheimer’s and other dementias present unique challenges to a caregiver, and his webinar will offer a how-to look at caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. Instead of focusing on the symptoms, diagnosis, treatments and possible cures for Alzheimer’s, the emphasis will be on the care and dignity of the individual in order to help them live a more fulfilling life. Learn how this unique approach to person-centered care helps to successfully manage behaviors and positively engage clients or loved one.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand methods to maintain quality of life
  • Describe at least three ways to keep a loved one engaged and manage behaviors
  • Understand how to take care of the caregiver
