Dementia Beyond Drugs:
Changing the Culture of Care
Presenter: Dr. G. Allen Power.... Award-Winning Author, Board Certified Geriatrician, and Expert Resource in Person-Directed Dementia Care
If you have any questions about the training contact Jessica Lowe at 502-564-7963 ext.3310 or at Jessica.Lowe@ky.gov.
Based on Dr. Power's award-winning book, this 2-day learning experience uses the framework of culture change to create a new approach to caring for people who live with dementia. Learn why the current paradigm for dementia care can never produce satisfactory results and explore an "experiential model" that facilitates growth, meaningful engagement and improved well-being via the application of person- directed care.
Participants will learn how to:
Identify the limitations of our current approach to care for those living with dementia;
- Shift to an "Experiential Model" for viewing dementia and recognizing the importance of enhancing well-being for all;
- Apply the model to everyday situations and reduce or eliminate challenging behaviors by using creative solutions to empower individuals to live full and positive lives; and
- Decrease reliance on psychotropic medications, while complying with F-tags F329 and F428.
