Webinar: Finding the Balance--Enhancing Self-Efficacy in Persons Living with Dementia

June 26, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

Register for the event

Few attributes of personhood are more zealously protected than self-determination, and few fears more troubling than losing one's independence. For people with dementia this can be particularly intense. Using stories taken from more than 30 years of experience, geriatric psychiatrist Dr. Susan Wehr will illustrate why preserving autonomy and enhancing self-efficacy in people with dementia are important. She will discuss ways professionals can support individuals living with dementia—and their families—in making decisions, even in the context of diminished decision-making capacity.
