The ART of Caring
Learn the skills you need…
By 2025, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias is estimated to reach 7.1 million. Congregations play a critical role in caring for a person, as well as their family, who lives with Alzheimer’s disease or another related dementia. In this offering we will uncover the changes that occur in the brain when diagnosed with a neurocognitive disorder, learn best ways to communicate and the most effective strategies to decrease resistance. There is no charge for the workshop.
