- October 10 | Responding to Dementia Related Behaviors
Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. These behaviors are a form of communication and are essential to understanding the needs of the person with dementia. The purpose of this workshop is to help caregivers decipher behaviors and determine how best to respond.
Zoom link will be available closer to time.
