working with seniors: addiction, grief, and dementia   November 6, 2017

Addiction Among Elders, Thornton │ November 15, 2017
9:00am to Noon

Statistics show that the number of older adults facing addictions is increasing in conjunction with the increase in population of those over the age of 55. While alcohol is a common focus when exploring addictions, research supports a growing epidemic of opioid abuse among all age groups, including the elderly.

Information will be presented from a growth and development perspective with a primary focus on addiction in the older adult. Click here for full details and registration.

Grief and Bereavement, Thornton │ November 15, 2017
1:00pm to 4:00pm

With age comes loss; with loss comes learning to face a new reality. Typically, when grief and bereavement are discussed, the primary focus is on loss through death. However, given the increasing age of the population and the challenges faced in maintaining health, grief and bereavement are felt with a variety of losses that are encountered during life transitions – changes in finances, physical and cognitive abilities, and housing.

This presentation will focus on exploring loss from a variety of lenses, beginning with the individuality and similarities in which people of all ages deal with grief and bereavement. Click here for full details and registration.

Just added! Dementia: Behavior Awareness, Webinar │ December 13, 2017
1:00pm to 4:00pm

Because dementia causes severe changes to the brain, a person with dementia may have unexpected personality changes with behaviors. This presentation will help you gain a basic understanding of behaviors due to dementia and recommended interactions.

Furthermore, understanding the possible meaning behind behaviors provides us with an ability to respond appropriately with meaningful communication and interactions. Click here for full details and registration.
