Oaks Integrated Care Caregiver Conference: Caregiving for Today and Tomorrow - RWJUH Hamilton

Thu., December 8; 5 to 7:30 p.m.

Caregivers of seniors with dementia, and memory loss are invited to attend this conference to gain insight into communicating, and dealing with anger and other challenging behaviors. Many caregivers describe feeling moody, helpless, and short-tempered, saying and doing things they later regret. In this presentation you will learn a variety of approaches for managing emotions and actions in the moment, along with activities and resources for handling the anger and other challenging emotions that effect caregivers. Attendees will also learn ways that Alzheimer’s and other dementias affect an individual’s ability to communicate across different stages, and get tips to better communicate with people living with the disease. Dinner provided.
