A new online learning series

A new online learning series

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Federation of Quebec Alzheimer Societies is launching a new learning series with the objective to provide frontline workers and healthcare professional with the appropriate tools and knowledge to help and support people living with dementia in long-term care facilities.

Under these challenging times, it was important to us to provide basic information to anyone who would be in a position to provide support and care for the first time to a person living with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, as well as to those who wish to deepen their knowledge. This new learning series does not however replace the education program. We encourage you to get in touch with your local Alzheimer Society who will be able to assist you with further coaching and mentorship.

Beyond the support and intervention that healthcare professionals provide in long-term care it's also important to rethink the work organisation as well as the living environment for better care to people with dementia.

Take the time to consult the series PC P.E.A.R.L.S to better understand the various changes that can be made in your unit in order to implement a person-centered approach where the you see the person and not the disease.
