C. Accompanying Families on the Dementia Journey

Being a caregiver for a person with dementia is demanding and requires substantial support. Three-quarters of dementia care partners express concerns about their health, and more than half report experiencing elevated emotional stress. This session will show you how providers of aging services can help. Presenters will introduce you to the KnACĀ© approach, which provides a framework for care partners to focus and ground their thoughts, attitudes, and actions. A senior living executive and a dementia expert will guide session participants through the KnACĀ© process so they can help caregivers make decisions, set care goals, and change their environment, mindset, attitudes, knowledge, and emotions. Learn how to help caregivers connect with the person living with dementia, the community, and themselves.
