DEALING WITH DEMENTIA TRAINING

The four-hour course provides caregivers with effective strategies for dealing with dementia behaviors. Using  Dealing with Dementia: A Caregiver’s Guide, the training teaches caregivers how to find answers and resources. This resource helps caregivers with new skills and tools, as well as introduces them to a caregiver group. A few of the skills that Dealing with Dementia can provide are problem solving, as well as self-care for the caregivers. 

Caregivers who attend the workshop will receive a copy of Dealing With Dementia: A Caregiver's Guide was written by the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving. The guide provides more than 300 pages of information and solutions to problems caregivers face every day.

If you are a caregiver or know someone who is caring for a loved one with dementia, this training is for you.
You must attend the entire duration of the training. Seating is limited.
