The Senior Helpers are offering a free Dementia Care Workshop Series to community members and organizations. The three workshops are designed to provide caregivers of those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia with engaging, positive, and cognitively appropriate interaction strategies and activities. The curriculum extends beyond the typical symptoms and conditions associated Alzheimer’s disease and focuses on what people in various stages of the disease can do, as opposed to outlining their deficiencies.
Workshop 1: Recognizing and Understanding the Progression of Dementia
Workshop 2: Positive and Effective Strategies for Dementia Care Using the Senior Gems®
Workshop 3: Techniques for Successful Dementia Care Interactions Using the Senior Gems®
