Counseling People with Early-Stage Alzheimer’s:
A Tale of Evolution and Revolution
Robyn Yale, LCSW
Intended audience: Dementia care professionals, geriatric care managers, social workers, nurses, counselors, therapists, residential care administrators and managers
People with early dementia face enormous challenges in coping with their condition, but typically do not have access to one-to-one interventions for education and support. Because of this, many become isolated and marginalized. This workshop for dementia care professionals will present a new framework that shows how the various emotional, practical and lifestyle issues faced in the early stage are interwoven.
Continuing Education Credit: This program is approved for 3 CEUs for social workers. All participants will receive certificates of attendance.
