The Power to Choose: Negotiating Autonomy and Risk
In order to create the Best Life for those living with dementia, it is important to foster inclusion and normality. Dr. Power will describe how even well-meaning care partners and family members can limit people's rights through stigmas, self-fulfilling prophecies, and an overemphasis on safety that can actually be more harmful to the person. He will use real-life stories and examples to illustrate how a relational approach can be employed that negotiates risk to optimize choice and well-being.
In this webinar, presenters will examine census recovery and the importance of leadership in imrpoving morale and effectively managing staff members, elders, and families that have been and continue to be under stress.
Experts from throughout the series will examine the best practices unveiled during the previous 11 sessions, discuss key takeaways, and be on hand to tie it all together as well as answer questions.
