Webinar: Just Say "No" to Drugs and "Yes" to Successful Behavior Management

Adrienne Riaz-Khan

This issue of caring for individuals suffering from memory loss who may exhibit behaviors that are difficult to manage ISN'T JUST ABOUT MEDS!

How to shift the paradigm from the highest priority of "clean, fed and dry" to "enjoyable contented days" is the key to providing excellent care for those entrusted to our care. The shift from the medical model to the social model continues to be the stumbling block…regardless of fancy initiatives with great names …"

Plan to join speaker Diana Waugh, Waugh Consulting, LLC to laugh and learn!
