Supporting a Person with Dementia Image

Do you have a loved one suffering from dementia? Are you one of their primary caregivers, but you feel confused, overwhelmed, and isolated as you try to navigate their illness and the health-care system? 

Perhaps you’ve even attempted your own research, but finding the right information isn’t easy, and you’re not sure if you’re practicing the right procedures.  

Supporting a Person with Dementia will provide the information, guidance, and techniques you need to become a confident caregiver. 

In this free, two-hour virtual workshop, you’ll learn: 

  • How to describe symptoms of dementia
  • Dementia strategies to use when supporting a loved one at home 
  • How the disorder progresses and changes to expect 
  • Effective communication techniques when supporting a person with dementia 
  • How to identify self-care measures to maintain your health as a caregiver 

This workshop includes a combination of class lecture and a simulation experience. After participating, you’ll feel confident knowing you’re providing safe and effective care for your loved one.  

Join us for this FREE, online workshop taught by health-care professionals. You’ll also have the chance to connect with other caregivers and have your questions answered.
