Virtual Professional Training: Dementia’s Ripple Effect
June 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
This virtual professional training will provide an overview of dementia-related illness, 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.
