Gain Knowledge and Confidence With Your Care
Thanks to Crossroads Hospice and Pallative Care for Sponsoring This Class!
Dementia has touched many of our lives and even left some families with damage they will never recover from. Teresa Youngstrom understands Dementia and will provide an interactive workshop to help you gain knowledge and confidence with your care.
You will identify key signs and symptoms of cognitive decline related to Dementia then discuss the impact of changing sensory awareness. You might be surprised by the answer to this question, “Do they even know they are sick?” There will be hands-on training to further incorporate new coping skills to reduce agitation and promote cooperation with your loved one.
The use of sedating medications will be addressed including some solutions to help us avoid these medications when possible. Ultimately you will see that we need to understand the value of consistent positive reinforcement in order to promote well-being and reduce the incidence of challenging behaviors. You just need to be here to appreciate the experience.
