Course Description

This course covers the importance of working with your client's family, understanding their grief process, and how to help them participate as members of the care team. You will also learn about how environment plays a role in your client's well being.

Course Objectives

Understand what the family is experiencing is a very important part of your job. When you help care for someone with memory loss, you are also providing a service to that person's family, whether you realize it or not and understanding their grief process will help you help them be an active member of the care team throughout each stage of dementia. Another consideration for care is the environment - it can hurt or help the person in your care. With this course, you will learn how to make the environment an asset.
