As a care partner (read why our industry is moving toward Care Partner, and away from Caregiver, here) you have certain activities that must be accomplished every day with your person living with dementia. And you want the time spent with your person to be as pleasant as possible for the sake of both of you. Learning caregiver skills can be a game changer.
This aspect of dementia caregiver coaching will help you adjust your interactions and techniques as you notice how the progression of dementia changes the way your person thinks, behaves and remembers. There are five core skills you can master over three sessions as well as learn how to adapt them as the disease progresses.
Additional skills and techniques will be added as needed to address your daily situation.
