There is hope for those with dementia.
Dementia does not take away all our skills. When families understand what their loved one can still do, they can create a more comfortable home caregiving environment.
The DAWN Method® is the person-centered approach to dementia care that trains families and caregivers to recognize the skills dementia does not take away.
Judy Cornish, founder of the Dementia & Alzheimer’s Wellbeing Network (DAWN®), created the DAWN Method to share person-centered care and support aging in place.
Judy offers two books: Dementia with Dignity: Living Well with Alzheimer’s and Dementia Using the DAWN Method, on Amazon.com and The Dementia Handbook – How to Provide Dementia Care at Home, on Amazon.com. She also offers online Alzheimer’s/dementia training for caregivers and private dementia care training for families.
See her blog posts for quick tips on specific dementia care giving issues.
