Normal Aging /
Not Normal Aging
This workshop will help you understand and recognize the differences in “normal” and “not normal” aging. You will develop better observational skills to recognize and intervene effectively when behavioral challenges occur. You will also develop new skills related to approach, cueing, and ability to connect with people affected by dementia. The workshop emphasizes the value of matching helping behaviors to the person’s needs and retained abilities to promote a sense of control and self - direction. The workshop will also address typical issues that occur from early stages of the condition, through mid - disease, and into the final care concerns that are part of the progression.
