What is dementia?
How can I help my loved one?
Join us on May 12, when we will review excerpts from the dementia presentation, “Take My Hand – Effective Skills for Caregivers” (provided by University of Wisconsin – Green Bay and the Wisconsin Caregiver Academy). We will cover what dementia is as well as review the signs, symptoms, and stages of dementia. Additionally, we will watch a video to better help explain what it feels like to have dementia. Finally, we’ll discuss effective skills for dementia care.
Castle Senior Living incorporates the full version of this training module into our orientation for all of our employees.

She received her Bachelor’s in Social Welfare with a Criminal Justice Certificate and her Master’s in Social Work with a Mental Health emphasis from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Her goal is to help people with their physical, mental, emotional and healthcare needs by providing resources, support, advocacy and education.
