This workshop will help you:

 

•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.
