Dementia Caregiver Workshop
Thursday, January 16, 2020 - 10:00am to 3:30pm
303 East Matthews Ave.
Eighty percent of Arkansas' older population who are still living in their home depend on family and friends for assistance. Dementia care at home can become more and more challenging. A better understanding of the disease may help families care for their loved one.
This FREE 1-day Dementia Care Workshop provides information about dementia and support for anyone providing unpaid care to a family member in the home. Through lecture, hands-on demonstrations and individual questions, the workshop reviews: types and stages of dementia, dealing with caregiver stress or burnout, communication techniques, enhancing self-esteem and dignity, activities of daily living such as dressing and medication administration, home safety and nutrition, and local resources and reference materials.
Lunch will be provided.
