Knowledge is Power! With this in mind, did you know that there are many types of dementia, besides Alzheimer’s Disease? Being familiar with these types and how each one manifests itself in terms of behaviors, memory impairment, mood, etc. helps caregivers. Furthermore, it allows them to know the best approach when working with their clients. Proper and thorough training for all caregivers, whether professional or family, will lead to greater success. For example, this is true when working with someone who has dementia and is potentially resistant to receiving care. As a result, if you have found yourself feeling powerless and frustrated as a caregiver or perhaps burnt-out, this training could help you in making your caregiving efforts less challenging and more rewarding.
Are you fully prepared to handle all of the challenges associated with caring for those impacted by dementia?
