Becoming an Alzheimer's WhispererMassachusetts

Becoming an Alzheimer’s Whisperer: 
Gently and Lovingly Managing Challenging Behaviors

DATE: Friday, September 25, 2015

TIME: 8:00 am - 3:30 pm

LOCATION: Grace Chapel Adult Learning Center, 2 Militia Drive, Lexington, MA - Map and Information

COST: $50 - nurse; $40 - student/retired/non-nurse

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.

CE: 6 CE contact hours for nurses will be provided

PRESENTER: Dr. Verna Benner Carson, CNSPMH, BC, RN, Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing Clinical Nurse Specialist, President, C&V Senior Care Specialists, Inc.

REGISTRATION: Online registration available through September 20 with option to pay online, via check or at the door.  To register late please email and pay at the door (cash and checks only and a late fee).
