Event description

Description

This training is hosted by Hospice of the Valley and Quail Run Behavioral Health

Understanding Dementia: A Challenging Journey

Speaker: Maribeth Gallagher

Join Maribeth Gallagher, director of Hospice of the Valley’s dementia program,

to gain a deeper understanding of how dementia changes the brain and

influences a person’s ability to think, function and behave. Learn ways to

enhance quality of life, provide compassionate care and manage the stress of

being a caregiver. Once a family caregiver herself, Gallagher has a doctorate of

nursing practice degree and is a psychiatric nurse practitioner.


Hospice of the Valley’s Palliative Care for Dementia program helps people at all stages of the disease.

A dementia educator makes home visits to connect families with community resources. Caregivers learn

ways to bring loved ones comfort and joy—singing a familiar song or engaging in familiar activities.

Mindfulness meditation helps caregivers learn to relax and care for themselves.
