Recognizing and Responding to Exit-Seeking
Addressing what many caregivers see as wandering can be limited to repetitious redirection or restriction, leading to frustration and exhaustion. Learn how to recognize and respond to the three different needs people are trying to fill when exit-seeking.

Person-Centered Care: Who Am I, and Why Does it Help Your Staff?
Learn an efficient way to learn an individual’s unique traits, personal events and preferences to help us all with care tasks and overall quality of life.

Supporting Staff to Prevent Abuse and Neglect
Learn how to recognize and respond to those precarious situations where symptoms of dementia can lead to neglect and abuse.

Dementia and End of Life and Advance Care Planning

Teepa explains how to connect with someone living with late-stage dementia, how to recognize and manage pain and how to help the care team grieve the loss and celebrate the person’s life.

Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a process involving reflection of goals and values and communicating them to family or friends to guarantee a patient’s wishes can be met if they are incapable in a life threating illness or an unexpected event. Dr. Kevin Valadares, Professor at the University of Southern Indiana, will share resources and programs available to facilitate ACP conversations.

Activities and Engagement to Prevent Challenging Situations
Engagement is not just about keeping people busy. Filling the day with meaning can also help us as care partners. In this session, learn how to engage with purpose to prevent challenging situations.

Sexuality, Intimacy and Dementia
Dementia results in a wide variety of brain changes, including the ability to be intimate with others. Unfortunately, brain changes can lead to actions that are viewed by some as “inappropriate sexual behavior.” Learn a more helpful and healthy approach to situations involving sexuality or intimacy.
