Building Relationships and Skills in Dementia Care
“Dementia does not rob people of their dignity, it is our reaction to them that does.” … Teepa Snow
Are you caring for a loved one living with dementia?
How much better could life be for the both of you if you had the tools to address brain changes?
Being a caregiver for a loved one with dementia presents its own unique set of circumstances requiring a special set of skills. The progressive, terminal effects of dementia pose the ongoing need for caregivers to educate themselves on changes occurring with their loved one.
Are you caring for a loved one with dementia, finding yourself blocked and frustrated because you don’t know what to do and how to do it when it comes to relating and communicating?
Do you wonder why what you both want is not happening?
Learn to anticipate the struggles and how to be better prepared.
Recognize your loved one’s point of view, understand where they are coming from, comprehend the grieving of loss that comes with dementia, and develop a better understanding of what is possible and what is not.
