LIVE Interactive Webinar Training: Dementia’s Ripple Effect
January 19, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
This LIVE Interactive Webinar workshop will provide an overview of dementia related illnesses, including Alzheimer’s disease and the impact this illness can have on the individual in terms of health, wellness, and relationships. This workshop will aim to highlight the importance of building relationships and effective communication to ensure meaningful living is achieved. Through this workshop, we will look to reframe typical “problem behaviors” sometimes exhibited by individuals living with dementia as expressions of need and explore the myriad ways individuals with dementia commonly communicate their needs, especially as the illness progresses. Participants will explore strategies to proactively meet needs, to ensure quality of life is maintained. This workshop is fully interactive. Attendees may ask and answer questions throughout the presentation and participate in instructor-led discussions, as well as case vignette discussions, and a Q&A session at the end.
