Webinar: De-escalating behaviors in neurocognitive disorders
- Are you caring for someone diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other neurocognitive disorder?
- Are you frustrated and experiencing feelings of anger or sadness as you struggle to understand the changing communication style of your loved one?
- Are you looking for ways to better understand and respond to the meaning behind behaviors that present in varying degrees at each stage of the disease.
- Do you wonder how to respond when questions are repetitive?
- Are you looking for information that will help you decipher the needs, desires, knowledge and feelings being expressed?
If you answered YES to any of these questions please plan to join us for our inaugural ElderHealth Webinar this Wednesday, September 15 at 1:00 pm.
The ElderHealth team will come together to address your questions and concerns on the topic of Communication and Neurocognitive Disorders.
The main focus of the webinar will be understanding behavior as communication, with communication defined as how people relate to one another, how needs and feelings are expressed and how thoughts and information is exchanged.
Focus will also be given to the importance of non-verbal cues in helping to anticipate and prepare for responses to challenging behaviors. Using a relaxed, conversational format, each member of the team; doctor, nurse practitioners, and social worker will offer input designed to promote your confidence and well-being in navigating a highly stressful role as care partner or caregiver.
Time will be provided at the end of the webinar for your questions, comments, sharing, and feedback as we know how valuable your knowledge and experience can be for others traveling this road, as well as for us the community of providers.
Join us for a webinar on September 15, 1 pm – 2 pm AZ time with the ElderHealth team on how to improve communication and make your overall relationship better. This event is free and open to the public.
