LIVE ONLINE WEBINAR FOR FAMILY CAREGIVERS starts at 7:00 pm on June 11th!
Unexpected and different behavior is part of the journey of living with dementia. Often times as caregivers, we react to behavior as challenging or problematic and then attempt to “stop it” before pausing and taking a moment to notice what’s really going on. Human behavior is almost always an attempt to communicate or meet a personal need, and it’s important to remember individuals living with dementia are doing the best they can. In order to be successful in changing behavior, it will be about how you respond to what is happening, and what you choose to do that will make the difference and create a more positive outcome.
In this webinar you will:
- Learn how people living with dementia communicate their needs and feelings through challenging behaviors as the ability to use language is lost, and how to change resistance by using support, skill, and options that work
- Learn how becoming a detective instead of a judge will help you figure out what might be driving the behavior and help you make a positive difference by choosing a positive approach to care.
- Use Teepa’s GEMS™: Brain Change Model to understand behaviors as they relate to stages of dementia including Alzheimer’s.
- Learn how understanding an individual’s unique preferences or needs will help you partner and “work with” a person living with dementia when they are behaving in a way that is surprising.
