The session is designed to help care partners better understand why the person they are trying to help may at times exhibit ‘challenging behaviors.’ It will focus on looking beyond the disease to recognize other possible factors.  This problem-solving approach will be presented to help reduce the intensity, frequency, or occurrence of challenges. This will also help develop better communication skills when working with people living with dementia by emphasizing the value of empathetic and supportive communication. The overall goal is to reduce or minimize unproductive conversations and resistive behaviors by using effective verbal and physical skills. It will also focus on helping develop better observational skills to recognize and intervene effectively when behavioral challenges occur. The session will emphasize the value of matching helping behaviors to the person’s needs and retained abilities to promote a sense of control and self-direction. Grading and providing helping behaviors based on the person’s abilities and needs will assist in fostering positive interactions during care activities rather than struggles.
