As a first step towards acceptance of the changes in my husband [after his diagnosis] I made a phone call to the Alzheimer’s Society of Calgary to sign up for a course. After explaining my intent, and before anything else was said, the person on the other end of the phone asked, “How are you doing?” So unexpected, so sincere, so compassionate, so moving. We chatted for a long time.

Gentle Persuasive Approach

On Going All day sessions

We all deserve to feel safe in the workplace

You’re not alone in feeling overwhelmed. Let’s work together and remind you why you fell in love with your career in the first place.

With 1 in 5 care providers reporting feelings of distress, anger or depression when caring for those with dementia, a new approach is necessary.

Implementing the Gentle Persuasion Approach is a proven manner aimed at keeping your employees and people in distress safe.

With a trainer coming to your workplace and educating you and your colleagues, this one day course pays huge dividends for your safety and ability to do your job effectively. 

“GPA provides practical techniques to prevent

or intervene in behavioural

escalation at the workplace”

– Cindy Bond, Community Education Specialist

 

 

The Gentle Persuasive approach is available for groups of up to 10 people. Costs are $40 per person for the facilitation, with an additional $21 per person for the course materials
