Caregiver Bootcamp for Challenging Dementia Behaviors

The family members of patients living with dementia are cordially invited to participate in an innovative program presented by the Center for Geriatric Health and Disease Management at Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center. The program is designed to reduce caregiver stress and enhance quality of life for both the families and individuals suffering with dementia.

To qualify, participants must:
1. Care for an individual with Alzheimer’s Dementia or a related dementia who is living at home
2. Directly care for a person with dementia as an informal (unpaid) caregiver
3. Commit to one full Saturday and three follow-up teleconferences and be willing to record the response to the training
4. Speak English or have a reliable and available translator

Participants will learn, via hands on training and education, to effectively manage challenging behaviors exhibited by a loved one with dementia such as agitation, aggression, and disruptive behavior. The course will be taught by Gerald Tramontano, PhD, neuropsychologist, his staff from the NeuroCognitive Institute, and Theresa Redling, DO, FACP, Medical Director, Center for Geriatric Health and Disease Management at Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center.

This program is made possible by a grant from Kendal Charitable Funds.

Seating is limited. To reserve your spot call The Barnabas Health Link at 1.888.724.7123.
