About this Event

Being a caregiver to someone with dementia can be challenging.

In this webinar, caregivers will learn about “responsive behaviour” in people with dementia, and tips for identifying the underlying cause of this behaviour. Our speaker will discuss person-centered and practical approaches to supporting the person you are caring for in the context of a dementia diagnosis.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on responsive behaviours, and transitions in care will also be discussed. We will share resources and tools to assist caregivers with knowledge they can practice.
