The Environment and How It Affects Dementia Care

About This Webinar

Our physical and social environment impacts every aspect of our behavior, and it has an even stronger influence on a person living with dementia. Understanding how that works can help any post-acute organization to create a better atmosphere and promote better care of their patients living with dementia.

Watch this on-demand webinar to hear Teepa explore the role that the environment has on a person’s ability to participate actively in life as well as its impact on challenging situations.

Teepa places emphasis on:

  • Helping learners recognize the role that visual, auditory, tactile, and temperature cues play in triggering both positive and less positive interactions.
  • Modifying the physical environment for improved function, familiarity, and flexibility.
  • The need to readjust and make changes to the environment as the condition progresses and the person’s abilities and interests change.
