Dementia With Dignity

Caring for a person with Alzheimer’s or dementia calls for more than basic protection and physical care. Dementia With Dignity is a one hour training video, geared to both professional and family caregivers, which shows that quality of life can be greatly enhanced for persons with dementia when caregivers:

  • understand the varied effects of dementia
  • learn how to communicate and respond to the specialized needs of the person behind the illness
  • strengthen and encourage use of the remaining skills the person has in order to build self-esteem and stimulate intellectual abilities.

The video also looks at the importance of creating a safe environment for the person with dementia, and gives practical strategies for dealing with many of the effects of dementia, including combative or uninhibited behavior, sleeplessness, wandering, delusions and anxiety.

The video can be viewed in four parts with discussion breaks or as an hour long training session.
