Spotlight on the effect of dementia on reasoning, planning and emotional responses
This online session is a good opportunity to focus specifically on some of the planning and emotional control challenges which can occur for a person with dementia. We explore support strategies which can really impact on the wellbeing of the person and most importantly your ability, as carer, to cope with the challenges.
These challenges may include the ability to start and stop tasks, moderate emotional responses and using appropriate social behaviours.
By understanding the challenges for the person with dementia, this session will provide you with the knowledge that you have the ability and skills to support some of these challenges.
This session is for you if:
- you would like to learn about how changes in the brain can affect the emotional responses and ability to control of everyday situations
- you would like some ideas for supporting the person and reduce your own fear or embarrassment of potential situations
- you want to spend time with experienced healthcare professionals who will answer your questions in a safe, supportive environment
- you would like to meet other people who are taking care of a friend or family member with dementia in a similar situation
