Session Overview

Through interactive presentations and discussion, we will address the care of people with Advanced Dementia.

This will explore symptom management, share tools and techniques for practice and look at communication skills. Additionally we will as refresh your knowledge of the Mental Capacity Act and ethical implications for caregiving that arise as dementia progresses.
