Project Description

In another information-packed webinar, Anne Ellett, NP, MSN examines how misperceptions and the stigma of dementia assume people living with dementia (PLWD) are incapable. “If we change our view of PLWD to look for strengths and abilities, we can create a more normal living environment with increased choice and dignity,” says Ellett. This webinar discusses how misperceptions and the stigma of dementia limit the choices we offer to PLWD and how focusing on losses rather than abilities can result in denial of rehabilitation for PLWD. The difference between the medical versus the rehabilitative model of care for PLWD is also covered.
