A New Normal – Continuing Conversations about Dementia: Habilitation (YP)
March 7, 2014 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Mal Allard will discuss habilitation, a model of memory care developed in the mid ’90s. Habilitation has produced significant, positive results both for care partners and those with dementia. Deigned to optimize function by encouraging activities in which people with dementia can be successful, it promotes positive emotions and minimizes stress. Habilitation involves six domains – communication, emotion, function, physical, auditory and sensory.
