AHCE:701 Caregiving at Home - Caregiving and Dementia: Understanding Difficult Behaviors10/24-10/24  

During this final evening of the Caregiving at Home Workshop we will discuss caregiving and dementia. Behavior is a powerful form of communication and is one of the primary ways for people with dementia to communicate their needs and feelings as their ability to use language is lost. However, some behaviors can present real challenges for caregivers to manage. Join us to learn how to decode behavioral messages, identify common behavior triggers and learn strategies to help intervene with some of the most common behavioral challenges of Alzheimer's disease. Instructor: Speaker from the Alzheimer's Association St. Louis Chapter. Cost for adults 60 and over $17.00.

  Caregiving at Home - Which is Best...Care in the Home or in a Facility?09/12-09/12  

The need for caregiving in the home may occur suddenly with an illness or injury or, as with chronic illness or frailty due to aging, it may develop over a period of time. There are a variety of factors to be considered when the need for caregiving arises. This session will explore and compare home- and facility-based options when individuals need increased assistance with everyday tasks. There will be a discussion as to the range of services provided through home care agencies, including non-medical support such as housekeeping, shopping and errands, bathing and personal care, medical services such as physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and wound care. We will explore community services such as adult day care and respite care that may be beneficial to caregivers who wish to continue providing care for their loved one in the community. There will be a discussion about the different levels of facility-based care, including skilled nursing, assisted living and residential care. This class can be taken individually, or as part of the 7-week Caregiving at Home Workshop. While this course is primarily for the nonprofessional caregiver, portions of the course may be very useful to professionals providing care for family or friends. Instructor: Katelyn Eichorst MSW.
