Let’s Talk About Challenges with Personal Care @ Webinar
Jul 15 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Washing, dressing and brushing your teeth – all activities that we normally do without a second thought. But persons living with dementia may forget or lose interest in personal hygiene. As the disease progresses they may lose the ability to perform personal care. Assisting with personal care can be one of the most difficult challenges for care partners. Please join us to discuss strategies you can learn to help support both you and the person living with dementia. This webinar is brought to you by the Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region
