LIVING the Dementia Journey: Overview workshop

  • Enhances skills in relationship-building to support individuals with compassion and respect
  • Shares strategies to recognize, interpret and respond to personal expressions (behaviours)
  • Addresses ways to tackle boredom, loneliness, and helplessness by creating opportunities for meaning, purpose and growth

In 2021, we will be offering our LIVING the Dementia Journey Overview Workshop. This virtual course is for community members, family care partners, team members at home care/service organizations, and those providing support at long-term care and retirement homes.
