If you are a caregiver helping a loved one cope with Alzheimer’s or dementia, you are not alone. Over 15 million family members throughout North America provide some level of Alzheimer’s or dementia care. In observance of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, Home Care Assistance will be hosting a free webinar on Wednesday, September 12th at 11 AM Pacific, 2 PM Eastern to help educate family caregivers on effective communication techniques and practical tips for managing the evolving needs of a loved one with dementia. By being proactive and identifying potential problems that dementia sufferers may encounter, caregivers can better provide for their safety and wellbeing.
The webinar will feature renowned dementia expert Dr. Judith London, a licensed psychologist with over two decades of experience in the field of Alzheimer's and related dementia research and the author of Connecting the Dots: Breakthroughs in Communication as Alzheimer's Advances. To register for the webinar, please visit http://homecareassistance.com/alzheimers-awareness and reserve your spot today.
“We are looking forward to having Dr. London address our local caregivers,” said Mark Brodie, Owner of Home Care Assistance Calgary. “Our experience in dealing with Alzheimer’s clients has clearly illustrated the importance of educating caregivers providing care to these clients about the disease and how they can communicate effectively to ensure they are content and that their needs are met.”
September’s webinar on the topics of Alzheimer’s and dementia is the third installment in Home Care Assistance’s Healthy Longevity Webinar Series. The series brings experts from a diverse spectrum of health and wellness fields to the company’s clients and the wider community in an engaging and informative format. The premise driving the webinar series is that individuals who are well-informed will make better health decisions, become active partners with their healthcare professionals in promoting their own health and encourage loved ones to also engage in healthy lifestyle behaviors. The webinars are offered free to the public as part of our broader education initiative, through which we actively provide information and resources around topics related to aging, wellness and quality of life.
