In Part One of this two part series, participants will learn about the physical changes that take place in the brain during the course of dementia. This program will review the types of behavior changes that may occur and how to appropriately adapt to the person with dementia’s “new normal”. Communication strategies will be explored, as well as how to best use visual, verbal, and touch cues. The presenter will also share resources for further learning. The second part of this series will be offered on November 12 and will focus on specific strategies to be better care partners for people living with dementia. Both programs will be recorded and will be available for future viewing.
