I Don’t Have Dementia – But it is Driving Me Crazy is an mmLearn.org presentation for the James L. West Center for Dementia Care.
Help! Mom has dementia! Living with dementia can be a challenge for people with dementia, as well as people who are caring for them, whether they are direct care health providers or family members. Caregiving can present an emotional, physical, and – for family caregivers — financial stress. It is not unusual for caregivers to experience frustration, anger, guilt, isolation, and exhaustion. In this video, Maria Wellisch presents caregivers with practical information and solutions to living with and taking care of someone with dementia. It’s a video every caregiver should watch.
Through a partnership with mmLearn.org, James L. West offers the following video library with real-life, practical skills caregivers can start using today. mmLearn.org’s mission is to improve the quality of care and the quality of life for older adults by providing family caregivers, pastoral care providers and healthcare professionals with training and education based on evidence and best practices, using progressive technology and other advanced delivery methods.
An extension of Morningside Ministries, mmLearn.org has produced more than 300 caregiver training videos and provides training to caregivers worldwide. This session was recorded in December 2018.
