DESCRIPTION:Join us for a day of Education, Fun and Fellowship. Becoming an Alzheimer’s Whisperer means that we learn to calm the fears of the person caught up in this terrible disease, that we courageously enter that person’s world and help heal their broken spirits.
This presentation provides a brief review of the Theory of Retrogenesis that not only provides structure to examine the world of the person with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), but also suggests appropriate ways to respond to what we see in that world. Using the Theory of Retrogenesis and the various assessment tools presented, participants will examine the stages of Alzheimer’s, the change in cognitive level of the person as he/she moves through each stage of the disease, and specific strategies for understanding and responding to behaviors that emanate from that person’s world.
