Conversations with Carmen

November 15, 2019: Shedding Light on Dementia for Family, Friends and Care Givers
Guests: Linda Bump, MPH, RLD

Continuing the conversation on how we can stay in relationship, even when we must “give care” as a family member, friend or caregiver.

In this show, we’ll discuss approaches to support daily activities from self-care, to eating, to pursuing leisure.

In our last conversation, we detailed the five human needs of comfort, identity, inclusion, attachment and occupation. This show will have a special focus on the human need of occupation and will discuss specific ways and techniques to help persons living with dementia continue as much of their normal, daily occupation as possible.
