Erasing the Stigma: Developing Empathy for Those Living with Dementia
June 18, 2020
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Phillip H. Ryan Health Science Center
1 Denslow Road
East Longmeadow, MA
When we encounter people who live with Alzheimer’s or another dementia, we often don’t understand their behavior. Learning what’s driving their actions can help us create more empathy, dignity, and respect.
Laura Lavoie will educate community members on what it’s like to live with dementia, sharing tips and techniques on how to break down barriers and be more compassionate. Enhancing our dementia care services is a strategic focus for Glenmeadow.
Laura Lavoie is Glenmeadow’s director of life enrichment, a certified independent Positive Approach to CareTM (PAC) trainer, and an engagement leader.
