K. TraumaInformed Memory Care

Trauma can occur at any time in our lives, but we respond to it differently as we age. That response is often more complicated for a person living with dementia, who may struggle with trauma from their past while trying to navigate an unknown future. This session will show you how to recognize trauma in people living with dementia, help these individuals heal, and prevent re-traumatization. A Montessori dementia care professional and a licensed counselor will introduce you to trauma-informed care and explore how you can build a team to provide this care in your organization. You’ll also learn how to conduct effective support groups for people in the earliest stages of dementia and their family members.
