A Step Above: Providing Dementia Care in Home Care and Hospice
About This Webinar
The changes in the healthcare landscape have affected care metrics, reimbursements, and increased competition between organizations within the hospice and home care settings. However, providing the utmost quality of care remains a priority. With a major shift towards providing care in the home and the rise of dementia, home care and hospice workers need to understand how best serve those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia in order to provide person-centered care and have a step above the competition.
This on-demand webinar with Teepa Snow, the leader in dementia training, focuses on providing dementia care in a home and hospice setting. Teepa identifies observational skills that help us to recognize and intervene effectively when challenges occur. She emphasizes the value of matching helping behaviors to the person’s needs and retained abilities, along with modifying the task demands, environment, and most importantly, the caregiver’s approach. These elements, combined with many others, will form the base for problem-solving, personalized care planning and a competitive edge.
Watch this webinar to learn how to:
- Describe effective combinations of multi-modal helping techniques when presented with someone with dementia
- Recognize the value of consistent positive reinforcement and active programming to promote well-being in reducing challenging behaviors throughout the disease process
