Training on how to use the DAWN Method® of dementia care is available as an online course (or privately; see options below).
How is DAWN dementia training different?
Although our loved ones with dementia are not able to recall, interpret or express ideas regarding their experiences, they are still having experiences. Their experiences will be causing them pain and relief, happiness and sadness, fear and anger—just like ours cause us.
Understanding the emotional needs caused by dementia
Understanding the emotional needs caused by dementia & Alzheimer’s disease is at the core of DAWN dementia care training. When people are supported emotionally, they are more at ease and there is less conflict between those experiencing dementia and their caregivers.
Train everyone on your care team
Strength-based dementia care works best when everyone in your loved one’s life is using the same approach. The DAWN HomeCare Dementia Training for Families and their Caregivers course provides a series of 10 to 20 minute training videos, each presenting a specific step in providing strength-based, person-centered dementia care.
