Empowering Caregivers 

This is a two-part series that provides education and practical tools to those caring for someone with dementia. Improved day-to-day living and overall quality of life for the person with dementia and the caregiver is the goal. We cover communication techniques, strategies to manage difficult behaviors, and safety in the home.

Program is not intended for the person with dementia and is geared toward family caregivers only.


Thursday, October 12; 5:00 to 7:30 p.m.

It Starts with Communication
There are many proven communication techniques that caregivers can learn to improve day-to-day life for those with dementia and reduce their own stress. Learn how to communicate in a way that minimizes frustrations, decreases anxiety, and avoids disagreements.


Thursday October 19; 5:00 to 7:30 p.m.

Understanding Behaviors
Actions, or behavior, may be telling us something, like "slow down" or "I need something to do." Learning to understand the message and making changes to care can prevent outbursts and arguments.


Safety at Home
For someone with dementia, a safe and supportive home can prevent injury and enhance independence and a sense of security. Learn to adapt your home environment and make it dementia-safe and supportive.

 

Location : Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford, Johnson Conference Room, 170 Governors Avenue, Medford
