Few of us are prepared for the challenges of caring for a family member or friend, especially when memory loss and confusion are part of the picture. This overview will be helpful for caregivers with all levels of experience. Among the topics we will review are: basics of dementia, effective communication, personal care, challenging behaviors, managing and reducing caregiver stress and where to find extra information and assistance. The class is not for professional/paid caregivers.
This class is offered free of charge thanks to a generous grant from the Peninsula Health Care District.
