Caring for Dementia Patients
During the COVID-19 Pandemic
The Home Care, Hospice & Palliative Care Alliance is thrilled to start our second year of dementia training with nationally renounced dementia care educator, Teepa Snow. She will be speaking on Caring for Dementia Patients During the COVID- 19 Pandemic on January 21 at 1:00 pm. The webinar will be recorded and added to the Dementia Training website. Attendance, and the recording, is free for Alliance members.
The goal of maintaining social distancing boundaries to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus is challenging for all individuals, but is typically even more so for those living with dementia and their caregivers. This presentation will highlight the serious possible effects of social isolation, including the development of depression and anxiety, and ways to recognize these signs and symptoms. This session will also provide attendees practical tips for caregiving during the pandemic, such as connection strategies for video chat or phone calls, and communication techniques while using personal protective equipment.
Satisfies state requirement for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias education: person-centered care, assessment and care planning, activities of daily living, dementia-related behaviors and communication.
