Great Program for Caregivers
Caring for an aging loved one has its fair share of challenges. For the caregiver who is caring for someone with Alzheimer's Disease or another related dementia, these challenges are compounded by difficult behaviors that many times accompany Alzheimer's Disease, i.e. agitation, repetition, hallucinations, and sundowning. The caregiver in this situation is also grieving the loss of the person that they once knew.
On November 16, 2010 at 6:00PM (EDT) the National Private Duty Association is presenting a web conference for family caregivers, who are caring for someone with Alzheimer's Disease. The 45 minute web conference will discuss patient assessment, care plans, caregiver education, safety, and other issues related to caring for someone with Alzheimer's.
While the program is free of charge, pre-registration is required. To register and for more information, please visit the NPDA at http://www.privatedutyhomecare.org/.
