Caring for someone with dementia can prove to be a challenge. At times it can be rewarding, at other times, it might feel stressful.
Have unique challenges and unsure of how to manage?
- Repetitive questions
- Physical aggression or posturing
- Emotional ups and downs
- False memories or hallucinations
- Unexpected or socially inappropriate behaviours
- … Or anything under the sun
We offer a workshop for that.
Consider it "Caregiving 101." If you’re facing any caregiving challenges, this might be a great fit. Gain the practical strategies you need and equip yourself with a helpful, easy-to-use framework that will inform and guide your responses and decisions. You'll gain confidence, build your resiliency and empower yourself with great skills.
We can offer suggestions, 1:1.
Let’s have a conversation and see what we can come up with. Together.
Sometimes, creative solutions can be implemented at home to address a specific challenge.
Example: Repetitive questions causing frustration
Optional Solution: Some caregivers have found that having a whiteboard in a common or favourite area (where the person frequents) reduces repetitive questions. They itemize the activities of the day or other important information for the household. What’s more, it becomes an activity because everyone can contribute to it.
