Dementia Simulation - Monday November 18, 2019 at 11:00 AM
Why should you participate in Dementia Live? To elevate care, compassion and empathy for those with dementia, we must first gain an understanding of what dementia is and how the individual with dementia feels. The Dementia Live program provides an "inside-out" understanding of dementia enabling participants to experience and feel what it might be like to struggle with any level of cognitive impairment. Persons with dementia interpret the world around them differently than those without dementia. The reality they once knew slowly changes over time. For their families, coworkers, friends and care partners, these changes are mysterious, unpredictable and unsettling. Unfortunately, family members and others respond to these changes in a way that, while meant to be helpful, can sometimes result in an emotional outburst or withdrawal by the individual with dementia. While no one really understands what parts of the brain are undergoing change at any given time, the resulting behaviors are often more difficult to comprehend and respond to appropriately. Sign-up for your dementia simulation at the front desk, or call 624-6533 as space is limited. Presented by The Arbors at Bedford.
