Dementia Care During COVID-19: Lessons Learned So Far
On October 1st, 2020 the Webinar is now available on demand in their resource center by clicking on the green letters below.
Duration 1 HOUR
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues in the United States and the rest of the world, providing care for people living with dementia (PLwD) has never been more challenging.
The initial guidelines of maintaining six-foot social distancing requirements and heavy isolation was insufficient in helping caregivers provide quality care to PLwD. Those providing care were tasked with coming up with creative solutions to the challenges we are still facing.
During this webinar, Teepa Snow will discuss some of the lessons we’ve learned so far and adjustments you can make to provide better care to PLwD, while keeping them safe from COVID-19.
Join us as we discuss:
- What we’ve learned so far about dementia care during the pandemic
- Creative solutions that caregivers have been able to safely implement to improve the lives of those they care for
- How program leaders can help create safe environments for PLwD to receive necessary social interaction
