Community Dementia Education

Community Dementia Education

More than 5.4 million Americans today are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and for these individuals and their loved ones, it can be a confusing, isolating, and frustrating experience.  Families are subject to extreme stress as they notice changes in their loved one, but one thing they can do to handle this stress is to learn as much as they can about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Open Door Training & Development offers dementia training for caregivers and their families that focuses on understanding the changes that are impacting individuals living with dementia.  Memory Support Groups, churches, business or service organizations, and other groups can host sessions for their members or invite members of their local communities to attend.

 

Dementia education topics for Community Groups include:

  • “Dementia Basics for Families”
  • “Brain Changes & Their Impact on Your Loved One”
  • “Improved Communication Throughout the Disease”
  • “Walking in Their Shoes: A Dementia Simulation Experience”
  • “The Gift of Music in Dementia Care”
  • “Making the Most of Family Visits”
