About this event

Please join us for a FREE webinar led by Dorothy Colby, Hale Ku'ike Director of Community Engagement and Positive Approach to Care Trainer.

Anger, physical resistance, and swearing are just a few of the challenging behaviors that can occur when a person has dementia. As a caregiver, any of these behaviors can leave you feeling distressed, hurt, embarrassed and unappreciated. 

Explore which physical and emotional needs can cause challenging behaviors. Learn to develop new skills related to approach, cueing, and ability to connect with people affected by dementia to help reduce the chance of future escalations and make your person with dementia feel at ease.

Webinar will be recorded and available for viewing after event.
