Event description

Description

If you are a health care provider supporting individuals living with dementia within the acute care, community, LTCH or retirement home setting, please join us at the Inaugural “Embracing Dementia” workshop. This dementia care workshop for health care providers will provide information and best practice approaches to dementia, dual diagnosis, sexuality and family dynamics.

If you are caring for someone living with dementia, participation in the “Embracing Dementia” workshop will:

  • enhance your knowledge of person-centred care and effective communication;
  • increase your understanding of family dynamics and how to engage families using a Family Centred Approach;
  • assist you in identifying the subtle differences between interpretation and intervention of dual diagnosis;
  • increase your understanding of sexuality in the older adult population living with dementia and enhance your knowledge of assessment approaches to sexual behavior and interventions to support sexual behavior in the context of clinical and legal obligations; and,
  • offer you the opportunity to network with other health care providers within Hastings & Prince Edward counties.

Our featured morning Guest Speaker will be Jayne Harvey RN, BA, CEO of FSC International. As owner and CEO of FCS International, Jayne Harvey has established her name across Canada as a high quality consultant, facilitator and educator in behavioural care, providing strategies and tools that apply to health care organizations. Her trademark humour and dynamic style are as motivational and practical, as they are energetic and entertaining.
