Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias present unique caregiving challenges This web seminar offers approaches for how to care for people with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. Rather than focus on Alzheimer’s symptoms, diagnosis, treatments and possible cures, this session emphasizes the dignity of  individuals with dementia, and highlights care strategies that can help them live a more fulfilling life. This unique approach to person-centered care helps caregivers to cope with the difficulties of caregiving, and teaches how to successfully manage behaviors and positively engage clients or loved ones.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • Understand caregiving strategies that help maintain quality of life;
  • Describe at least three ways to keep clients and loved ones engaged, and to manage difficult behaviors; and
  • Employ strategies to take care of the caregiver.


Molly Carpenter is an author, speaker, trainer and family caregiver. She brings years of personal and professional eldercare experience and training to families that are dealing with dementia. Carpenter works with the team responsible for ensuring that Home Instead Senior Care’s worldwide network of 60,000 caregivers has the necessary resources to provide quality care at home, and that they understand the importance of their work and how it enhances their clients’ lives. Carpenter holds a Bachelor of Science degree in family science, with a gerontology specialization, from the University of Nebraska−Lincoln, and a Master’s in Education, with a gerontology specialization, from the University of Nebraska Omaha.
