What Does that Behavior Mean?

Conversations with Dr. Tam Cummings - A Monthly Education Series for the Dementia Caregiver

THURSDAY, JULY 1, 2021 11:00 A.M.- 12:15 P.M. ET, 10:00 A.M.- 11:15 A.M. CT

Featuring Guest Speaker Tam Cummings, Ph.D., Gerontologist, Author, Untangling Alzheimer’s: The Guide for Families and Professionals

Each lobe of the brain is responsible for certain behaviors or reflexive actions. Knowing the normal function of each lobe and the behaviors or changes that occur as the dementia progresses allows caregivers to determine behaviors which indicate the disease’s progression, versus behaviors which indicate infection, stroke, anxiety, or depression.  This webinar will discuss:

  • Detailing which behaviors are unique to specific dementias
  • Recognizing and addressing challenging behaviors
  • Understanding verbal, anxiety, aggression, depression, pain, scatological, and sexual behaviors

Communication in Dementia

Conversations with Dr. Tam Cummings - A Monthly Education Series for the Dementia Caregiver

THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2021 11:00 A.M.- 12:15 P.M. ET, 10:00 A.M.- 11:15 A.M. CT

Featuring Guest Speaker Tam Cummings, Ph.D., Gerontologist, Author, Untangling Alzheimer’s: The Guide for Families and Professionals

A Person with Dementia (PWD) is suffering from a terminal brain disease. Understanding how memory works, knowing the type of dementia your loved one has, and the stage of the disease, allows caregivers to target conversation to the memories that continue to function. Using this skill allows for interactions with old memory and can lead families to new insights into their loved one’s younger life. Join us as Dr. Cummings discusses how you can improve communication with persons living with dementia.
