Personalized dementia care—Bridging the gap...
Product Code: ALNM2203

It is long-term care providers’ responsibility to help residents support a quality of life that aligns with who they are and supports all the things that are important to them. Maintaining a quality of life is crucial to everyone, including those with dementia. People who are suffering from dementia lose the opportunity to control their own quality of life. It is essential, as the supporting cast, to understand their world and provide the stage needed to thrive and not just survive. Learn how to create a personalized dementia care approach.

This webinar is part of the 2022 Assisted Living Education Series.

Workshop objectives
  • Ultimately, we are supporting humans, and understanding how we maneuver our human experience is the key to success
  • Learning how to support what a person living with Dementia retains instead of fighting what they have left is a shift in thinking that requires some unlearning
  • Learn the Positive Approach to Care and feel what happens when we do “with” people instead of doing “to” them
