You work with older individuals, including people living with dementia
You need to respond to challenging behaviour changes
If this sounds like you, the Best Friends™ Approach workshop may be the perfect place to begin. Without advanced dementia-specific training, it can be extremely challenging and exhausting for healthcare professionals to work with people living with dementia. In addition to creating significant changes in behaviour and personality, dementia affects a person’s thinking, judgment, communication skills and ability to function independently. Give yourself the knowledge and practical skills you need to succeed.
The Best Friends™ program will provide you with:
Strategies for preventing and reducing challenging behaviour changes caused by dementia
Effective communication techniques
Methods for creating meaningful activities to engage the person living with dementia
Effective caregiving strategies and best practices based on the renowned Best Friends™ model of care
