The Alzheimer’s Support & Education Network (ASEN) collaborates with other community agencies to work together to create a ‘Dementia Capable’ Community. ASEN has developed a dementia awareness and resource presentation that is disseminated to various professionals, not-for-profits, first responders, faith based organizations, governmental entities, and community residents to lead the way to a more dementia-friendly community. By attending this course you will understand basic brain function, discover that dementia is not a part of normal aging, learn about the typical characteristics of dementia, learn tips for interacting & communicating with an individual living with dementia, and understand the concern of dementia for those with an intellectual or developmental diagnosis. Participants will also walk away knowing their community resources related to dementia and special needs.

Course Objectives:

  1. Identify normal brain function vs. dementia.
  2. Identify signs, symptoms, and behaviors of dementia.
  3. Practice tips for interacting and communication with an individual living with dementia.
  4. Understand the connection of Down’s syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease.
