Learning To Speak Alzheimer’s: An Introduction To The Habilitation Approach To Care

Applying the basic concepts of habilitation (which is simply care giving that embraces the remaining abilities of the person with dementia), the video shows how to create a suitable environment in which the person can lead a quality life through proactive adjustments. The practical information in this video will enhance the physical, psycho-social, and sensory world of the person with Alzheimer’s.

Caregivers will learn how to:

  • communicate better with persons with Alzheimer’s.
  • reduce emotional or aggressive-protective reactions by identifying and removing frustration triggers.
  • engage the person in life-enriching activities that promote positive memories, and boost emotional stability and self-esteem.

Ideal for nursing homes, assisted living, hospital, and home settings. A must see for all caregivers.
