Dementia Care and the Dignity of RiskAnn McLaughlin2022-01-27T15:28:39-05:00
Imagine if you were labeled by only one word, and that word alone determined how the world treated you. This is the reality for 85% of people living in long term care, who are defined by their diagnosis of dementia.
Instead, what if each Elder living with dementia was recognized as an individual, and care partners had the tools and understanding to help them achieve their best life?
The Green House Project developed Best Life to help organizations support people living with dementia to live a rich and rewarding life.
The Best Life program, which focuses on the holistic needs of each person living with dementia, encompasses four core principles: Power of Normal, Dignity of Risk, Advocacy, and Focus on Retained Abilities. This webinar will cover the Dignity of Risk principle and will be presented by Anne Ellett, dementia care specialist and certified nurse practitioner (NP), with more than 20 years of experience in Elder living and memory care.
