Caregivers for persons with Alzheimer’s face a number of challenges, including keeping them involved and diffusing difficult behaviors. But all too frequently, the caregivers can forget to take care of themselves. This webinar will show you how to use memories to comfort the person with Alzheimer’s, as well as ways to maintain safety using the PREVENT method. Easy, sensible suggestions for caregiver self-care will also be covered.
Participants in this web seminar will be able to:
- List five ways to engage the senses of a person with Alzheimer’s in order to keep them engaged.
- Name the seven parts of the PREVENT method, used to manage the behavior of a person with Alzheimer’s and ensure their safety.
- Identify six techniques a caregiver can employ to engage in self-care.
