Too often, aging service providers find that caregivers have not mastered the art & science of dementia communication, resulting in an unsuccessful - and undignified - dining experience. When they should be experiencing the comfort of a familiar routine, persons with dementia are instead experiencing confusion, frustration, and anxiety. The presenter, Erin Bonitto, MS, ADC, will offer concrete examples of dementia communication coaching. Any caregiver or leader will take away real-world ideas for improving the dining experience for persons with dementia.
