Guest Speaker: Krisie Barron, LSW, Caregiver Specialist. Embrace, LLC
TOPIC: Providing a Human Experience: Human Approach to Providing Care. It’s our job to help people be in charge of their own lives and help them maintain a quality of life that aligns with who they are and how they want to “live” out the rest of their lives. We must start by understanding the world in which they live, and educate ourselves on the “why” behind the feelings, frustrations and challenges that come along the journey.
>Identify how we connect matters
>Learn positive approach to care
>Understand how those living with Dementia understand the world around them
>Understand how we support each other as staff directly affects the care that is provided.
