The DAI February “Meeting Of The Minds” Webinar, Living with Dementia: Supporting Those Who Have It & Care Partners, by Laurie White provided us with real life (anonymous) experiences of people with dementia, family care partners and professionals working in the medical and social service arenas. Laurie helped participants to:
- Understand what it feels like to have dementia
- Connect with a person with dementia through effective communication strategies in the early, middle, and late stages, and
- Explore how building on old strengths and interests can bring meaning to people in all stages of dementia.
