Are you a care worker caring for someone with dementia? Are you unsure of how to approach challenging situations common to people with Alzheimer’s Disease? Do you want to provide the best care and quality of life for someone living with dementia? Do you have staff working with people with dementia?
SafeCare BC’s Creating Connections: Working with People with Dementia workshop was developed in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of BC and focuses on person-centred care. This session will provide you with:
– A better understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia
– Tips for communication with people with dementia
– Knowledge of how to be creative in dealing with some of the behaviours common among people with dementia
This one-day course will give you the tools to feel safe as a caregiver and gain confidence in providing the best care possible. Through interactive discussion and video, participants will learn how dementia impacts people physically, mentally and socially.
