Progression of Dementia: How to Help When Behaviors Are Challenging
About This Webinar
When dementia is involved, challenging situations may occur and could result in significant stress and conflict. However, when a caregiver has a thorough knowledge of what behaviors can arise within various stages of the disease, they are better able to manage these instances and their responses, resulting in more effective and better quality care.
This webinar provides attendees with an in-depth understanding of the progression of dementia and behaviors that affect caregiving and daily programming throughout the disease. We will use the concept of gemstones to help caregivers appreciate the value and uniqueness of each stage as the condition progresses.
Watch this webinar to learn how to:
- Develop a comprehensive understanding of the various stages of dementia
- Recognize specific behaviors associated with phases of progression and techniques for handling them
- Learn methods to practice mindful care for the person living with dementia
