Why Does He Do That? The Logic in Dementia

Speaker(s): Kathy Laurenhue, M.A.

Kathy can speak on a variety of topics related to dementia care, but says that everything boils down to understanding the person with dementia—their motivation and their message—and how you can effectively respond. In this course, you will learn the logic behind behavior. What is the person trying to communicate? Then, equally important, how can you respond in a way that makes everyone’s day go smoothly? This course provides both insight and answers, making it enormously practical for solving caregiving dilemmas. And as with all of Kathy’s presentations, it is lightened by an emphasis on using humor as your best coping tool.
