Dementia-Related Diseases & Care Seminar Summary

Gary Joseph LeBlanc, CDCS

Director of Dementia Education

 

I believe that the true way to educate family and professional caregivers
is through the heart. My seminars are full of personal and professional dramatury scenarios of my ongoing 20 year experience in dementia care.

Throughout this approximate 2 hour seminar, we cover:

• The true definition of dementia, and possible reasons why it take place.
• A thorough understanding of Lewy Body dementia, Frontotemporal degeneration, vascular dementia, mixed dementia, Korsakoff syndrome, early onset dementia, traumatic brain injury and more.
• Understanding that there’s two patients involved, the person living with
dementia and his or her caregiver.
• Identifying anxiety.
• Learning proper ways to use redirection.
• Sundown syndrome and shadowing.
• Bathing issues.
• Wandering, elopement and triggers to watch for.
• The ear to mind sensory dilemma.
• Eating dilemmas. DEMENTIA SPOTLIGHT FOUNDATION www.dementiaspotlightfoundation.org
• Learning to use all types of communication.
• Accepting the all behaviors are types of communication.
• The importance of using correct communication.
• Understanding and how to use in-time communication.
• Recognizing poor facial recognition.
• Dealing with challenging behaviors and solutions.
• Learning how to assess the behaviors and ways to respond.

This is just a summary of what we cover. This seminar is extremely thorough on dementia care. Printed material will be provided for all in attendance. The seminar will be presented along with a visual PowerPoint slide show. I have all the equipment for this, and will supply if needed.
