Dementia with Dignity


Caring for a person with Alzheimers or dementia calls for more than basic protection and physical care.Dementia With Dignityis a one hour training video, geared to both professional and family caregivers, which shows that quality of life can be greatly enhanced for persons with dementia when caregivers:

  • understand the varied effects of dementia
  • learn how to communicate and respond to the specialized needs of the person behind the illness
  • strengthen and encourage use of the remaining skills the person has in order to build self-esteem and stimulate intellectual abilities.

The video also looks at the importance of creating a safe environment for the person with dementia, and gives practical strategies for dealing with many of the effects of dementia, including combative or uninhibited behavior, sleeplessness, wandering, delusions and anxiety.
