Are you a care worker caring for someone with dementia? Are you unsure of how to approach challenging situations common to people with Alzheimer’s Disease? Do you want to provide the best care and quality of life for someone living with dementia? Do you have staff working with people with dementia?

  •  A better understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia
  • Tips for communicating with people with dementia
  • Knowledge of how to be creative in dealing with some of the behaviours common among people with dementia
