The Lake Land College Center for Business and Industry will offer a non-credit course titled Understanding Dementia, CE-HLTH125-44389 on June 5 from 5:30–7 p.m. in Webb Hall, room 081 on the Lake Land College campus. The class will be facilitated by Elizabeth Wells, MA, manager of education & outreach, with the Alzheimer’s Association.
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 for caregivers to manage. Join us to learn how to identify common behavioral triggers, decode behavioral message, and calm a person who is experiencing common behavior challenges.
CEUs will be offered to licensed dental hygienists, cosmetologists, estheticians, nail technicians, nurses, and massage therapists. However, this class is open to all community members.
