Description
Summary:Caring for a person with Alzheimer's or dementia calls for more than basic protection and physical care. Dementia With Dignity is a one hour training video, geared to both professional and family caregivers, which shows that quality of life can be greatly enhanced for persons with dementia when caregivers: understand the varied effects of dementia; learn how to communicate and respond to the specialized needs of the person behind the illness; strengthen and encourage use of the remaining skills the person has in order to build self-esteem and stimulate intellectual abilities. The video also looks at the importance of creating a safe environment for the person with dementia, and gives practical strategies for dealing with many of the effects of dementia, including combative or uninhibited behavior, sleeplessness, wandering, delusions, and anxiety.
