There are many challenges in providing care to someone with dementia.  During this session, we will focus on the common causes of challenging behaviors related not only to the disease process, but to the environment, nursing personnel, and visitors.  We will explore how to understand the person's reality and discuss the five main strategies to use when approaching and caring for someone with dementia.


Join culinary and culture change expert Jon Addess as he discusses how we can create home at all dining levels and move forward with culture change and deep seated choice. From tray line to satellite kitchens to neighborhoods to households, culture change is not only possible, but attainable.


Join us as culture change leader Matthew Tack discusses the advantages, barriers and opportunities available with implementing a Peer Mentor program.
