Essentials of Caregiving – Navigating Challenging Behaviors
Join the Caring for the Caregiver for a virtual session on Navigating Challenging Behaviors
Understanding challenging behaviors in persons with dementia can be complicated and overwhelming at times. It is first important to understand that the behaviors your friend or a family member is experiencing are related to changes occurring in their brain. To help support you in this role you may need to put your detective skills to work. Join us for a discussion on dementia and how the brain changes over the course of the diagnosis. Let’s learn together.
Navigating Challenging Behaviors is a virtual session designed to provide attendees with helpful strategies and tools to support you as a caregiver, as your loved one’s behavior might begin to change and vary.
Changes in behaviors among persons living with dementia may include:
- Anxiety & Depression
- Sleep Disturbance
- Refusal of Care
- Possible Aggression
This presentation will give you an overview of these symptoms and provide you with helpful suggestions and strategies to support you as a caregiver.
