Care Connection Webinar: Empowering Your Loved One Through Dementia-Friendly Home Design

May 11 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm EDT

Dementia-friendly design helps empower your client or loved one. When a home incorporates the design elements of someone’s changing needs, the person’s risk of falling is reduced, memory is aided, and the client or loved one has more freedom to use his/her own abilities. 

Kelly Gilligan and Nettie Harper, co-founders of Inspired Memory Care Inc., will share helpful tips, room by room, on how to modify a client or loved one’s home environment when the individual is living with cognitive change.
