Course Overview

Based on Silviahemmet care methodology

It’s no secret that dementia caregiving can take an emotional, financial and physical toll. As a caregiver, you may feel exhausted or overwhelmed sometimes. Are you facing many uncontrollable situations, such as normal daily activities in dressing, bathing and eating? Are you also struggling with aggressive behaviors and dealing with the impact of the disease? Unfortunately, you cannot simply change the behavior of a person living with dementia. You need knowledge and effective tools that can help you.

“Now, I feel way more knowledgeable in addressing different challenges when taking care of my grandmother. I am also more comfortable in discussing and advising my other relatives that have not undergone any courses, suggesting to them a different point of view with an understanding that our beloved grandmother and her behavior is a result of a specific disease.”
