Memory Care Home Solutions is proud to offer this event in partnership with Saint Louis University & the Gateway Geriatric Education Center.
Join us on April 30th for Dementia Hacks: Expert Strategies for the Most Difficult Symptoms & Behaviors, an interactive six-hour virtual continuing education event to explore the most puzzling and challenging dementia symptoms! Memory Care Home Solutions clinicians will provide training and coaching in management of common behavioral and psychological symptoms including resistance to care, agitation, refusal to bathe, and more. This event will feature guest speakers including Washington University geriatrician Dr. Timothy Holden to discuss the medical management of dementia symptoms and Project Present founder Ann Marie Mohr on creative communication strategies. Attendees will leave with new knowledge and skillsets in behavioral management strategies to immediately apply in their work and caregiving roles.
Included with event registration, participants will have access to a Dementia Hacker Chat Drop-in session on May 14th with clinical experts to brainstorm and discuss their experiences in applying the strategies and refining approaches.
Course approval applications are being submitted for continuing education credit for nursing home administrators, physical therapists, physicians, psychologists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, and social workers.
