Where: On Zoom

Cost: FREE 

 

Event Schedule:

 

Tuesday, October 25th: Understanding Dementia

Learn what is happening in the Alzheimer’s or dementia brain. Once we understand why the changes are occurring, we can learn how best to respond to the disease and associated behaviors.

 

Friday, October 28th: Validation Therapy

Explore the theory of validation as a therapeutic communication technique for dementia symptoms. Reduce fear and anxiety, prevent crisis, and improve the well-being of the confused person and their caregiver.

 

Tuesday, November 1st: Managing Behaviors and Activities

Discuss common dementia behaviors and strategies to handle each challenge. Learn how to engage in meaningful activities to encourage feelings of worth, hope, and independence for those living with dementia.

 

Friday, November 4th: Creative Solutions and Practice

Develop a plan of action to help your loved one live life to the fullest. Real life challenges will be shared and we will problem-solve together. By practicing the tools and techniques discussed in the course, you will come away feeling empowered and prepared for the journey ahead.
