- Are we relying too heavily on medications to treat distressing behaviors? Are there other options?
November 30, 2017
7:00 am - 9:00 am
In honor of National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, we welcome you to a FREE breakfast and FREE CE educational event!
Please join True Care Home Health Care and Inspired Memory Care for a Continuing Education Event & breakfast. All professionals are welcome to attend. Social Workers will receive one contact hour of continuing education credit.
We will discuss evidenced-based non-pharmacological approaches to minimize or eliminate distressing behaviors. Participants will explore distressing actions and expressions within the framework of communication. Presenters will share case studies in which non-pharmacological approaches have brought a voice, purpose and meaning to an individual. We will learn how exploring the root cause of distress can help support an individual with a memory loss to have a more meaningful life.
