Webinar: Dementia Care — Taboo Topics

September 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

Sometimes a person living with dementia will engage in inappropriate and/or challenging behaviors that may cause others to feel uneasy or even embarrassed. Since the brain changes involved with dementia can cause a person’s inhibitions to be diminished, caregivers may observe sexual and toileting behaviors that seem out of character for that person. And, since care partners are often advised to “join the person’s reality,” does that mean it’s okay to take liberties with the truth? In this webinar, Hope’s dementia specialists will address these taboo topics and provide care partners with strategies and suggestions for handling sensitive issues.

45 minutes, with optional Q&A following.
