Care Essentials: a focus on communication and behaviour

Care Essentials provides an opportunity to learn and share with others who are supporting a family member or friend who is living with dementia.  Topics covered in Care Essentials address issues commonly faced by Care Partners who are supporting someone in the middle stages of dementia.  They include:

  • Communication:  Strategies to enhance communication
  • Behaviours:
