Dementia Care: Navigating Difficult Transitions

1.0 CEU

  1. Brief overview of Dementia: What is Dementia, Common Forms of Dementia, Areas of the Brain commonly affected
  2. Supporting a Transition to Memory Care: Addressing & Answering FAQs from Family (Ex: When is the right time? What should we bring? How often should I visit? How should I explain this to them?)
  3. How to set realistic expectations: both for your loved one and for their caregivers.

About Our Presenter: Christie Hendrich, Memory Program Coordinator (MPC) for Belmont Village, unintentionally discovered her passion for Memory Care roughly 7 years ago through volunteering.  She has worked in Memory Care for 5 years, starting as an Enrichment Leader, which quickly led to her role on the Belmont Village leadership team, overseeing the award winning Circle of Friends Programming, as well as The Neighborhood (secured memory care). Christie holds a 10 hour dementia training course monthly, and works hands-on in memory care daily, mentoring staff for best practices and problem solving through challenging behaviors. She also works closely with families through transitions including: moving to Assisted Living, moving to Memory Care, dementia-related physical and cognitive decline and end-of-life care.
