Event description

Description

If you have a family member living with dementia, chances are good that you are feeling stressed, afraid, overwhelmed, and confused. It doesn't have to be that way.

Join two local experts in dementia care who have teamed up to be your guides in The Dementia Journey!

In this hands-on, interactive, FUN workshop you will learn

  • What is actually happening to the brain with dementia
  • How to respond to typical problems like repeated questions, sundowning, refusing self-care, inappropriate behavior, and agitation.
  • Why sensory changes can cause safety issues, and what to do about it
  • How to stay engaged with the person with dementia in a positive, caring, and joyful way

Come and experience a better way of traveling the journey that’s called dementia!

Breakfast will be served and is included in the workshop fee.
