Family Programming at The Waters
Connecting Families with Education and Resources to Enhance their Wellbeing
Our Wellbeing philosophy doesn’t stop with our Residents. Families are an integral partner at The Waters, and we strive to provide quality programming in a holistic manner to support their role as well. We’ve partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association, UBS Financial Services, National Parkinson’s Foundation and St. Croix Hospice to bring up-to-date and evidence based programs to empower families with knowledge and skills to support the caregiver, daughter, son, and other family member roles.
While the majority of offerings are intended for family members/caregivers, current and prospective residents are invited to attend as well. All sessions are free of charge and require advance registration. You can RSVP online through the web form provided or contact the hosting Waters community directly. We hope to see you there!
Understanding & Responding to Dementia Related Behaviors
An Alzheimer’s & Dementia Educational CEU Event
During the middle stage of dementia, the person with the disease often starts to exhibit new behaviors that can be confusing for a caregiver. These behaviors are a form of communication, and are essential to understanding the needs of the person with dementia.
To help caregivers decipher behaviors and determine how best to respond, the Alzheimer’s Association offers the Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior program.
By the end of the session, attendees will be able to:
- Identify common triggers for behaviors associated with dementia.
- Explain the process for assessing and identifying challenging behaviors.
- List strategies to address some common dementia-related behaviors.
Through practical information, resources, and interviews with experts, this program will help caregivers to address the challenges of dementia-related behavior.
Professionals may receive one (1) CEU for attendance.
