Learn how to adapt your approach for the best outcomes.
At The Arbor Company, we have a rich background of working with seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. We know that it takes thought and training to properly approach someone with dementia, and that’s on a good day. But when you insert some sort of crisis into the mix, it is easy for things to either get out of hand or misinterpreted.
That’s why we work closely with first responders, helping them understand what it’s like to live with cognitive impairment, and prepare them to better serve those with memory loss.
This quick guide outlines common ways dementia affects seniors, walks you through the stages of dementia, and offers a dementia action plan to help you achieve the best results.
We’re here to help. If you are a first responder in a jurisdiction near one of our communities, we are able to provide free training for your department. Contact your local Arbor community to inquire about in-person training and seminars.
