Dementia Care: Behavior as a Form of Comunication
Thursday, February 22, 2018, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDT
Category: Events

Many individuals with Alzhiemer's disease and related dementias demonstrate behaviors that negatively impact themselves and others. Often the behaviors are simply a form of communication expressing an unmet want or need. This webinar will identify and categorize the frequently seen behaviors in persons with dementia in order to explore the common root cause. This session will describe an empowering person-centered and cognitive level informed non-pharmacologic intervention approach to prevent and/or to reduce the frequency and severity of the behaviors. Case study examples will be utilized to demonstrate how to apply this non-pharmacologic approach for successful behavior management outcomes.

Webinar: 1 CE
