LIVE Interactive Webinar Training: Understanding the Path of Those Who Wander

August 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

During this LIVE Interactive Webinar workshop, participants will build knowledge on Alzheimer’s disease and explore symptoms that can lead a person to go out in search of something outside of their current setting.  Participants will have the opportunity to explore what it may be like to walk in the shoes of someone who is wandering to build empathy and insight into this behavior. In addition, this workshop will explore the signs and symptoms that can lead to challenges and identify strategies to better engage the individual in meaningful living and provide purpose to reduce risk and increase safety. 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.
