Dementia Care & Focus on Retained Abilities

Category: Best Life Web Series
Jun 18, 2019, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM

In this webinar, Dementia Specialist Anne Ellett will examine dementia care and the important of focusing on retained abilities. First and foremost, Best Life dispels the myth that living with dementia means you do not have retained abilities and talents and cannot continue to experience and learn new things. The prevailing perspective of dementia focuses predominantly on loss, debility, and fear. Traditional beliefs, behaviors, and systems reinforce the perception that people living with dementia are “unable” or childlike, while Best Life focuses on the value of real relationships with children, pets, and nature.
