All behavior communicates. It holds the key to understanding client
needs and helps staff to shape their caregiving.
This 1/2 day
presentation was developed to assist in
-
home care and home health
agency staff in understanding clients with Alzheimer’s & other
dementias. Attendees will learn about the disease progression and
how to support the best list possible through thoughtful attention to
well
-
being. Attendees will leave this course with a better
understanding of how to view challenging behavior as
communication and how to support the independence of clients and
meet their needs.
We will offer a framework for developing and
implementing practical systems and individual interventions to
address behaviors.
