BRC Dementia Care Consulting is offering a FREE Educational Workshop on Dementia Care at the Long Island Museum. This workshop is for those caring for family members/friends with Alzheimer’s Disease or related dementia (this is not a workshop for professional caregivers or for the person with dementia).

Caring for a loved one with dementia can be challenging and stressful.  Yet most caregivers do not receive any education about how to effectively provide care.  During this 4-session workshop, you will be provided with the information, strategies and practical skills training needed to create a more positive caregiving experience.

Key topics addressed include:

  • Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease and other causes of dementia
  • Techniques for communicating with the person you are caring for
  • Strategies for managing challenging behaviors caused by dementia
  • Understanding the importance of self-care and strategies for lessening stress

This event is free but space is limited.  Please call Beth Chiarelli to register at (631) 751-0066 or Beth at bchiarelli@longislandmuseum.org.
