SeniorsMatter.com is the growing online destination for caregivers, offering deep and varied advice for persons who participate in the care of the senior population. Education and training through virtual seminars is a new offering by SeniorsMatter.com to meet the continuing education needs of caregivers.
The webinar will be moderated by SeniorsMatter.com founder, Joy Meason Intriago. It will deal with several vital aspects of dementia, such as understanding what dementia actually is, why persons with dementia do not admit their symptoms, real-life examples and approaches that work, learning what normal aging and cognitive functioning are, real and potential causes of dementia and memory loss, and the full range of factors, causes and effects of dementia, including the impact on the brain.
Dealing with the difficulties and challenges of caring for someone with dementia is one of the most daunting parts of a caregiver’s job. Laura Wayman’s book, A Loving Approach to Dementia Care, focuses more on the person instead of the behavior to attain cooperation and a more stable life. During the webinar, Ms. Wayman will answer questions from the attendees.
