Nearly 60 percent of caregivers who care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias rate the emotional stress of caregiving as high or very high. A new Alzheimer’s diagnosis can bring with it a whirlwind of stress, confusion and anxiety about what to expect as the disease progresses.

This web seminar is a how-to presentation on caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. The emphasis will be on the care and dignity of the individual to help them live a more fulfilling life. It will also detail a person-centered care approach to help to successfully manage symptoms and positively engage the individual with the disease.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
• Review the basics of dementia and understand the different types;

• Understand different symptoms and how to minimize them;

• Learn person-centered care and support strategies for family caregivers; and,

• Discover additional Alzheimer’s and dementia resources.
