Seminar Description:

Activity Professionals face the challenge of meeting the needs of a diverse population. There are an estimated 5.2 million Americans over the age of 65 currently diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. As a result of this terrible statistic, nursing facilities and assistied living centers are now filled with individuals who are either battling this disease or some other related disorder. Which activities work? Which ones fail? And how do you keep coming up with ideas to meet the specific needs of each individual resident? In this seminar, Cat will be filling the day with "nothing but activities" for persons with dementia. Designed specifically for the Activity Professional, as well as any other professional who works with this population, participants will receive: activity ideas for women; activity ideas for men; activity ideas for behavioral challenges; activity ideas for varying levels of mental status; and active/passive activity ideas. She will also be providing program format suggestions, as well as effective techniques to involve facility staff and families.

This program is designed for ALL SETTINGS (nursing facilities, skilled facilites, assisted living centers, adult day service, etc.). If your staff work with elders who have dementia, this is one seminar that you want them to attend! Register your staff as early as possible. Seating is limited!
