The Dementia Alliance of North Carolina is presenting a two day Zoom conference on behavior management on Feb. 10 and 11 from 11 to 2:30 each day. Click here for more information.
The conference is in honor of Dr. David Kaufer, a very Lewy-savy neurologist who passed away last year. Dr. Kaufer was a mentor for Pat Snyder, author of Treasures in the Night, a very good book about making the early stages of LBD last as long as possible. Pat will be one of the speakers and I will be as well. Dr. Trey Bateman, who worked with Dr. Kaufer, will be the third speaker. It should be a conference well worth taking the time to view.
The conference was going to be held in North Carolina with an audience limited to those who could attend physically. However, Covid changed this as it did so many other events. But that’s not so bad in this case. Now, with a virtual Zoom conference, we are able to make the information available to anyone who wants to watch!
The three of us will present our different takes on a single subject: management of dementia-related behavior, with a focus on awareness (learning all you can about the disease and how it causes the behaviors), attitude (how you think and feel about the behaviors) and actions (what works and what doesn’t and why). Although all three of us have strong LBD-related backgrounds, the Dementia Alliance addresses all dementias and so does this conference.
