Home Instead Senior Care will offer a special webinar on “Caring for Someone with Alzheimer’s” as part of its ongoing monthly Family Caregiver Support Series. This webinar, which will take place on Wednesday, June 11, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm CST, will help caregivers learn important strategies to assist them in their Alzheimer’s-related caregiving.
The June 11 webinar will feature valuable information from Home Instead Senior Care and will concentrate on issues relating to caring for those with Alzheimer’s. Rather than focusing on symptoms, diagnosis, treatments, and possible cures, the webinar will emphasize providing patients with care and dignity so that they can live more fulfilling lives.
Participants will learn how this approach to person-centered care can help to successfully manage behaviors and positively engage a person with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
The webinar will address topics such as:
- Understanding methods to maintain quality of life.
- Describing at least three ways to keep a loved one engaged and manage behaviors.
- Understanding how to take care of the caregiver.
Molly Carpenter, an author, speaker, trainer, and family caregiver will be the presenter. Ms. Carpenter holds a bachelor of science in family science with a gerontology specialization and a masters in education with a gerontology specialization.
We urge anyone interested in this webinar to register in advance.
Home caregivers already caring for a person with Alzheimer’s, as well as those who may be in this position at some future time, can benefit from this invaluable webinar. Learning ways to more effectively care for individuals facing challenges associated with Alzheimer’s can have a substantial impact on the quality of life of both the patient and the caregiver.
