DementiAbility Training for Caregivers

About This Program

This workshop is meant for caregivers supporting someone living with dementia.

The goal is to understand how: memory impacts dementia, thus differentiating between memory loss and spared capacity; the importance of “knowing the person” and how this impacts behaviour and ‘What to do’; to address needs; to set each person up for success, enhance function, enable abilities, engage each person in a world with meaning, purpose, leisure and pleasure; and, generally, help each person to be the best he/she can be.

This workshop runs for 7 consecutive weeks. Each week builds upon the knowledge gained from the previous week, so you must be available for all sessions. You will receive a workbook in the mail to help guide you along each lesson.
