At age 65, about 5-10% of us will experience some form of dementia. By age 85, the percentage increases dramatically to nearly 50%. Of course, this age is a key time for moving to new housing situations, changing household composition, or reorganizing a home. When the older adult has dementia, the job of helping them re-organize, reduce, or move can become a HUGE challenge and even dangerous at times. The person often misunderstands and becomes fearful about what is happening. Because they can't remember what has been agreed to, they can become accusatory and angry. They may also refuse help and "fire" you or threaten you or your staff. This session will help you develop specific programs and techniques to reduce the risk of problems and improve the probability of a successful downsizing or relocation! Develop better interaction skills when working with people with dementia! Teepa will emphasize the value of empathetic communication in combination with redirection and distraction. This approach is used to cope with distress and promote the use of "go with the flow" and improved non-verbal strategies to enhance client understanding and responses. Discover how to reduce or minimize unproductive conversations and resistive behaviors by using effective verbal and non-verbal skills.
