Workshop Topic:

Creating Connections: Working with People with Dementia

In Creating Connections: Working with People with Dementia, you will better understand Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, receive key tips for communication, and learn how to be creative in dealing with some of the behaviours common among persons with dementia . The information will be presented within the context of “person-centred care”. Through lecture, interactive discussion, and video clips, you will gain the tools to feel more confident and safe as a caregiver, so you are able to provide the best care possible.
