Description

This live webcast has been designed specifically for you, the frontline dementia care professional who is providing the best care possible to dementia patients living with moderate-severe stages. They display complex and challenging behaviors, like agitation, hitting, screaming, wandering, delusion, resistance and withdrawal.

Persons with dementia need increasing support that is provided in a way that communicates friendship, compassion and dignity. However, those of us in a support role experience first-hand the frustration, disappointment and even anger that accompanies the day-to-day responsibilities of dementia caregiving – often leading to burnout due to emotional exhaustion, depersonalization of patients and feelings of failure. That is not the personal level of care you sought to give others while in school.

Avoid the real potential consequence of failed behavior management in your dementia care – join Leigh Odom, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, CDP, CADDCT and learn evidence-based non-pharmacologic treatments and person-centered strategies to minimize the effects of dementia behaviors. Watch and walk away with:

  • A systematic approach to developing individualized behavior plans that are more likely to work the first time
  • Methods to accurately identify common causes and manifestations of challenging behaviors
  • Management strategies to directly target the trigger causing the undesired behavior
  • Communication strategies to use with persons with dementia as a behavior management strategy
  • Strategies to manage the potential consequences of compassion fatigue and burnout

Developing person-centered behavior plans in dementia care results in higher quality care, increased quality of life for the patient and decreased provider burnout. For your benefit and that of your patients, register today and get the dementia care training to be a better problem-solver!
