Wednesday, March 18  12:30 - 4:30 p.m. 

Join us during this four hour educational workshop presented by Dr Beth Nolan from the Positive Approach to Care trainer network. Conditions of the brain are complex. This presentation will take an in-depth look at dementia through a strengths-based approach, describing both the neurological changes of the disease process, as well as retained skills and abilities. Common problematic interactions and barriers to communication will be de-coded using this information, across the progression of the disease, helping participants find a path forward with dementia.
