Alzheimer's Association Program

Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior

Ages 18+   Min: 2    Max: 20

 **Registration Deadline: Tuesday, February 25, 2020**

During the middle stage of dementia, the person with the disease often starts to exhibit new behaviors that can be confusing for a caregiver. These behaviors are a form of communication and are essential to understanding the needs of the person with dementia. This program is designed to help caregivers decipher behaviors and determine how best to respond. By the end of the session, attendees will be able to: identify common triggers for behaviors associated with dementia, explain the process for assessing and identifying challenging behaviors and list strategies to address some common dementia-related behaviors. Through practical information, resources and interviews with experts, this program will help caregivers to address the challenges of dementia-related behavior. *Feel free to bring your own lunch during the 12:00pm session.
