Can't You Make it Stop? A Positive Approach to Dementia Communication and Behaviors

Seniors with dementia experience a loss of cognitive power causing mood swings and personality changes along with difficulties in communicating with others. Most family caregivers are shocked, not knowing how to react when faced with such issues, potentially leading to strife and friction. Melanie Bunn, gerontological nurse practitioner and expert in dementia care, will provide tips and strategies to understand dementia behaviors and learn communication skills. This can help caregivers reduce the stress in caregiving and enhance relationships with loved ones struggling with this illness. Join us for this FREE 30 minute Webinar that will be followed by a 15 minute question and answer session.
