Few are prepared for the challenges of caring for a family member or friend, especially when memory loss and confusion are part of the picture. This two-hour overview introduces the latest, most effective strategies for dementia care, and will be helpful for caregivers of all levels of experience. We will cover basics of dementia, mindfulness-based stress reduction, effective communication, activities of daily living, challenging behaviors, how to engage, and finding information and assistance. Sponsored by Catholic Charities CYO San Carlos Adult Day Services, and supported by a grant from the Peninsula Health Care District.
