A New Normal: Supporting Your Loved One At Home (YP)

October 1, 2014 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Whenever possible, the role of an Alzheimer’s caregiver should be to maintain positive emotions in the individual affected by Alzheimer’s. This should be done by emphasizing the individual’s strengths and abilities, rather than dwelling on abilities that have been lost. Known as the “habilitation” model of care, this approach can be used to great effect by those caring for their loved ones at home. This presentation will focus on important issues facing the home caregiver. Topics include making adaptations to the home environment, safety considerations, and taking advantage of community resources. 

Space is limited. Please RSVP!
