This webinar series explores our own values and beliefs about intimacy and aging and the relationship between these sensitive topics when we are supporting persons with dementia. There are challenges presented by the desire for intimacy when faced with physical, mental, psychological, social and environmental barriers.
This webinar is the first of a two part series in partnership with ASC / CCNA. Part two (which takes place Tuesday April 28) will use case examples to highlight some common challenges that arise when issues of intimacy arise in persons with dementia and strategies will be offered to help us support meaningful relationships.
This integrated KTE webinar event is brought to you by brainXchange in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada and the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA).
