In recognition of National Caregivers month, PGSPN will host a family caregivers workshop on Fri., Nov. 1!
Until There’s a Cure, There’s Care
Speaker: Kathryn Quinlan, Positive Approach, LLC
The Positive Approach Philosophy encourages Care Partners to:
- Respond to a person's change in cognition and abilities in a way that is not hurtful or offensive.
- Understand that, with practice, common reactions to the person living with dementia can become thoughtful responses that improve quality of life for everyone involved.
- Recognize that the person with dementia is doing the best they can and if something isn't working, it's the responsibility of the Care Partner to change their approach toward the person living with dementia as well as to discover what can be done differently to address the challenging situation.
- Be aware of the environments surrounding a person living with dementia and make changes as needed.
When: Friday, Nov. 1, 8:30 am – 1:30 pm
Where: Newton White Mansion, 2503 Enterprise Road, Bowie
