Event description

Description

Beyond PIECES and GPA: The ‘Meaning’ of Behaviors in Persons with Dementia (PwD) presented by Dr. Atul Sunny Luthra.

The behaviors of people with dementia are a means of communication, and by learning how to interpret them, caregivers can enhance the quality of care they provide. As such, we must improve our skills to interpret what PwD are telling us.

Dr. Atul Sunny Luthra has developed and will present his new approach to interpreting the meaning of these behaviours. This full-day workshop will enhance your knowledge and awareness of dementia, and will introduce you to Dr. Luthra's inventory and model. This will help you, as professionals working in dementia care, to develop behaviour care plans that better manage risks.

This workshop will be particularly helpful to anyone working with PwD, including, but not limited to, professionals in Long Term Care or retirement home settings. All members of these health care teams (i.e., nurses, PSWs, Activation, Social Workers, etc.) are invited to attend.

The cost to attend this workshop is $60 ($56.81 plus $3.19 Eventbrite fee) per registrant.

Space is limited, so please register early to avoid disappointment.

Registration will begin at 8:30AM

Presentation will begin at 9:00AM and should conclude no later than 4:00PM
