Home Care Assistance – Halton/Peel Region (http://www.GreaterTorontoHomeCare.com), the area’s leading provider of non-medical, in-home senior care, is announcing another installment in its Continuing Education webinar series, with a focus on dementia intervention, on October 24 at 2:00 p.m. EST.
“A huge part of our mission at Home Care Assistance – Halton/Peel is to educate,” says Rick Heinz, owner of Home Care Assistance – Halton/Peel Region. “It’s important that we regularly provide resources for our staff on subjects such as dementia and Parkinson’s home care to improve how they are able to care for seniors. Learning how we can improve the lives of all seniors who choose to receive eldercare at home is vital to the future of home care and overall health care in general.”
The webinar will be led by Dr. Samuel Gontkovsky, Home Care Assistance’s executive director of research and development, who will discuss the diagnostic criteria for dementia and issues surrounding the various forms of the disorder. The webinar is designed primarily for healthcare professionals, including nurses, care managers, discharge planners, and social workers.
“We know how damaging dementia can be to the individual and the family that has to endure their loved one suffering with the disease,” Heinz adds. “Dr. Gontkovsky has a thorough understanding of diagnostic procedures, as well as current pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments of the disease. The knowledge he brings to this webinar will be valuable to our caregivers and anyone else who participates.”
“The Continuing Education webinar series touches on many more topics, such as Parkinson’s home care and dealing with heart disease,” Heinz concludes. “This is all done in an effort to ensure Home Care Assistance – Halton/Peel Region caregivers are completely informed and have available resources to provide a consistently high level of elder care.”
