CE: Dementia Care: Promoting Autonomy and Safety
Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias gradually result in a person’s disability and dependence on others for care. How can we respect someone’s desire for independence in light of growing impairments? Does dementia always cloud one’s capacity to make sound decisions? Is autonomy more important than safety to the diagnosed person? How can families and other caregivers protect someone from harm without seeming oppressive? This session will address such questions and explain strategies for dealing with sensitive issues such as cessation of driving, accepting help and moving to another care setting. Complimentary Admission.
