Free dementia training for caregivers
Sponsored by the Gero Leadership Alliance, the Oregon DPSST and the Wellness Education Board of Central Oregon, this free training will build on what we know about dementia while developing new skills to support and help. Participants will look at our approach, our cues, and our ability to connect. We will then learn hands-on ways of communicating and assisting with daily life and in times of distress.
By the end of the training, participants will be able to:
• Recognize the role that your words and actions play in the behavior and responses of people with dementia,
• Describe factors for optimizing positive interactions
• Identify techniques that improve the potential for successful communication, and
• Demonstrate positive communication strategies.
People who complete this training are also eligible to receive continuing education credits from the National Association of Social Workers and the Oregon Department of Human Services.Please visit http://www.webcohub.org/teepa-snow to reserve your spot today.
