EAP Workshop: Dementia Care Essentials – Understanding the Behaviour and Communication Changes in Dementia and Personcentered Approaches (Virtual)
About the Course
All behaviour has meaning! A person may experience changing abilities because of dementia. When this affects communication and one’s actions, it can cause misunderstanding and mutual frustration.
In this session, we discuss why people with dementia may ask repetitive questions, become anxious or physically/verbally reactive. Participants will be immersed in activities that simulate sensory, environmental and communication changes – factors that may trigger a change in behaviour. We will also discuss examples of person-centered strategies.
