Behaviors as Communication? A Dementia Patient’s Attempt to Connect
Caregivers and healthcare professionals are frequently frustrated by the behaviors exhibited by those diagnosed with irreversible dementia. When we recognize that “difficult” behavior is simply a way for persons with dementia to communicate and get their needs met, serving the patient becomes easier. Join us for this informative program on interpreting body language, reading signals and deciphering the mysterious behavioral language of dementia.
