Homelessness 201: Understanding & Responding to Dementia Related Behaviors on ZOOM
September 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Course Description: Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as the ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges to manage and decipher. Join us to learn to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers, and learn strategies to help intervene with positive approaches with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.
Jenna Pogorels is a Sr. Program Manager at the Alzheimer’s Association of MN/ND and licensed clinical social worker within the state of Minnesota. Jenna has been providing education and support services to individuals, families and communities impacted by dementia for over 7 years.
