Throughout the stages of dementia, a person can exhibit what caregivers label “challenging behaviors.” The anger, confusion, fear, paranoia and sadness that people with the disease are experiencing can result in aggressive and sometimes violent actions. This session reviews strategies which are most effective in caring for persons living with a dementia-related disease.
Join us for a light lunch and an informational presentation in the Anderson Fellowship Hall at The Heritage.
RSVP by March 4 to firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-589-4646.
