Family caregivers are supporting people living with dementia for a decade or longer. Recognizing changes throughout this long disease can feel like detective work. Award-winning occupational therapist and dementia care specialist, Heather McKay, will present a seminar focused on the 5 stages of dementia progression and strategies that work to support people in the difficult middle stages. This session will emphasize the value of matching helping behaviors to the person’s needs and retained abilities to promote a sense of control and self-direction in the middle stages of dementia. Participants will learn effective communication strategies and hands-on techniques for helping with personal care, reducing resistance to care and making participation easier and safer for themselves and the person in middle-stage dementia.
