Anxiety, Aggression & Alzheimer’s: Effective Strategies For Difficult Times
Kathy Rhoads, MSW, LCSW
Owner, Circle of Friends Adult Day Center
Anxiety is one of the greatest challenges of Alzheimer’s disease. This can cause agitation and, in some cases, even aggressive behavior. Join us as we examine factors that contribute to agitation, and learn practical steps to lessen anxiety and promote a sense of wellbeing.
Sundowning, Sleeplessness & Alzheimer’s: How To Cope in the Evening
Sue Sklar, Manager, Education & Outreach
Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter
Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease can not only have a tough time making it through the day, but the nights can be especially challenging. Day and night can become confused, and late afternoons can be difficult due to a variety of contributing factors. We will look at those factors and discuss effective strategies for dealing with late day confusion, lethargy and sleeplessness.
Minds in Motion: What’s The Best Way To Exercise Your Brain?
Sandy Burgener, PhD, RN, FAAN
Associate Professor Emerita, University of Illinois
There is a growing body of evidence that shows the incredibly positive impact certain physical activities have on brain health. The great news is that the impact is positive for both persons with dementia and those who are in early cognitive decline. Join us for this important audio conference and learn which types of physical activity show the most promise for supporting brain health.
Making the Move: Choosing a Nursing Home, Alzheimer’s Unit or Assisted Living Facility
Lee Moriarty, CTRS ,
Illinois Pioneer Coalition Founding Board Member and
Consumer Project Manager
Moving our loved ones to a residential facility can be one of the hardest decisions we are faced with. Safety, affordability, quality care, fun and friendship all factor into this important decision. Join us to learn a step by step decision-making process, and receive a workbook that will help guide you through this transition.
Successful Daily Plans for a Person With Alzheimer's disease
Hadi Pagonis, Manager, Education & Outreach
Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter
If you want to hit a home run when caring for a person with memory loss, it helps to have a game plan that is heavily focused on activities. Being an arm chair quarterback and saying, "Hey, why don't you work on your crafts now?" just won't work. Managing our energy while helping the person with memory loss to be actively engaged will bring satisfaction and fun to all. Join us to score some strategies for fun!
