Understanding Dementia in the Real World
Thursday, May 20th
A virtual course, presented by the Training Team at Senior Living Residences
This presentation provides an overview of what dementia is and is not, common symptoms that accompany memory loss, and communication techniques for real-world situations. Our training helps to build both empathy and understanding of dementia and gives practical tools for someone to use when communicating with or assisting individuals with memory loss.
We will also discuss how education can be a crucial tool when fighting the stigma of dementia, as it builds stronger understanding of what someone may be going through when experiencing memory loss.
