The dementia journey can feel hopeless, chaotic, and exhausting… unless caregivers have the tools that bring hope, predictability, lower stress, and well-being for everyone on the journey. Learn how hope and beauty can be enjoyed on the journey, get a glimpse into the evidence-based DAWN Method approach to caregiving, and understand next steps in learning more about dementia care by attending “Gifts of Dementia: Understanding Strength-Based Care” sponsored by Colorado State University Extension.
Dementia refers to a syndrome where cognitive function deteriorates beyond what might be expected from the usual consequences of biological aging. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, but any form of dementia can result from a variety of diseases and injuries that affect the brain. Physical, psychological, social and economic impacts occur not only for people living with dementia but also for their caregivers, families and society at large. The “Gifts of Dementia” program will highlight the difference between how we as a society typically handle dementia care and how we can do it differently so everyone involved along the way can benefit.
Jill Couch, MS, OT/L and Founder and Director of Better People Care, focuses on dementia and was inspired to do so because of her grandmother’s journey through Alzheimer’s, without dementia-specialist care. Jill has the privilege of being a DAWN Dementia Care Specialist and DAWN Trainer, which allows her to bring hope and help to those living with dementia and their families.
“Gifts of Dementia” is for caregivers, health care providers and anyone interested in dementia care. This presentation will be provided on Oct. 20 and 21 in six locations in northeast Colorado.
