Families Coping with Dementia is an mmLearn.org presentation for the James L. West Center for Dementia Care.
The presenter will explore the conflict and strain that often exists when caring for a loved one with dementia. Support from family members is not always forthcoming and decision-making has the potential to erode family relationships.
Maria Wellisch, RN, LNFA has 40 years experience as a nurse and administrator, with most of her experience in long-term care. Maria will present caregivers with practical information and solutions to living with dementia as a caregiver. It’s something 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 around the world. This session was recorded in October 2018.
