This webinar has concluded and is now available on demand in our resource center.

With the increased awareness of dementia, it’s vital for your entire healthcare workforce to understand the condition and how to emphasize empathetic interactions. Specialized training can empower your workforce to understand the differences between "normal" and "abnormal" aging and understand when to employ additional techniques.

Relias is pleased to host our latest thought-leadership webinar, Building a Dementia-Aware Community, featuring renowned dementia care expert, Teepa Snow. During this one-hour session, Teepa will offer insight into identifying common types of dementia and discuss verbal and physical techniques your staff can use while interacting with individuals who are living with dementia.

Teepa will also review:

  • Insight into brain changes that occur during the progression of dementia
  • The differences among the most common forms of dementia
  • Techniques your staff can use to identify common symptoms and behaviors that are indicative of dementia and may require a special approach
