Event Details

A full day training for Administrators, Nurses, Staff Developers, Recreation Therapists/Activity Directors, Social Services, Dietary Services, Occupational, Physical and Speech Therapists.

In many situations, challenging behaviors among residents with dementia and delirium are simply their way of communicating.  Are they in pain?  Frightened?  Hungry?  Not feeling well?  Do they have some unmet need, want or desire? The challenge to care providers is to NOT focus on the behavior, but to focus instead on what the behavior is attempting to communicate.
During this full day training, we will gain a greater understanding of:

  • Dementia and delirium based challenging behaviors
  • Antecedent behavior monitoring and the process of root cause analysis
  • Verbal and non-verbal communication techniques necessary to support residents with challenging behaviors
  • Powerful resident centered behavioral alternatives to pharmacological intervention
  • How to reduce the risk for wandering, elopement and falls among residents with dementia/delirium
