Training Overview Description

Caring for someone with dementia can be hard when they begin to lose their sense of memory and language. Communication starts to take different forms and might include expression through challenging behaviors such as yelling, acting out, or withdrawing.

There is a reason! Learn how to rethink behaviors as forms of communication while strategizing appropriate responses.
