Dementia Management - Tulsa - September 2 #DM8 (NAB Pending)
Wednesday, September 2, 2020 (9:00 AM - 4:30 PM) (CDT)
“If you learn to listen for clues as to how I feel instead of what I say, you will be able to understand me much better.” (Mara Botonis). Living with dementia is a heartbreaking process filled with confusion, frustration and fear for the patient and for the caregiver. Part of living well and having quality of life with dementia is for family members and caregivers to be educated so they can adjust to each individual person’s needs and abilities. Too often caregivers are not taught what dementia is, the different types of dementia and how to deal with the behaviors that come along with it. We put our residents at risk and for decline when we don’t provide education to those that care for them each day. Dementia Management decreases problematic behaviors for the resident and the caregiver. It also allows for quality of life and even joy for both sides. This one-day training will teach attendees about dementia in a way that makes sense and makes it easy to apply in their work every day. They will find joy with their residents functioning at even the lowest levels. Come learn how to “Change Their World”.Program submitted to NAB for 6 hours of ceu's.
