Sponsored by All Seniors Care
The pandemic has changed the landscape of dementia care. But in the face of adversity, courage, strong leadership, teamwork, compassion and resilience has emerged.
We’re excited to invite you to our Dementia Care “Caring During COVID-19 and Beyond” Professional Development Series! Upcoming sessions are two half-day workshops on Tuesday, August 17 and Thursday, August 19 from 1 to 4 pm. Presenting “Dementia Care Education,” are two Alzheimer Society staff members, Education Manager Jennifer Vincent-Licardo and Education Coordinator Heather Hiscock, who will discuss the basics of dementia and dementia care.
In this presentation, Jennifer and Heather will discuss important skills and strategies for day-to-day care, brain changes in dementia and how they affect communication, judgment and decision-making, the cognitive changes of dementia (7As of dementia) and how these brain changes affect the life of a person with dementia.
Additional sessions will be offered monthly, focusing on restoring relationships with family care partners, hands-on/practical skills in providing day-to-day care, enhancing communication skills and many more best practices in dementia care.
These sessions will take place once a month from May 2021 to March 2022 via Zoom. Cost is $20 and when you register, you will also have access to previous recordings. Register now.
