Supports for people living with dementia and their families are most effective when they are person-centered, and the result of a thoughtful and responsive planning process, which takes into consideration what is important to a person and to their family. A clear and engaging approach to discovering and addressing people’s priorities as dementia progresses is essential when guiding providers to deliver optimal support. This webinar will address foundational person-centered principles, and provide examples of discovery processes in planning for people who are living with dementia in a range of settings, including in the community.
Participants in this webinar will be able to:
Describe the differences between the foundational concepts of “important to” and “important for” in person-centered practices.
Identify one process to capture and record behavior as communication.
Recognize the purpose of discovery, management and everyday learning tools.
