Erin Bonito Fremont

Erin Bonitto will be doing an abbreviated version of her program, “I Already Told You, Don’t You Remember” in two offered times on April 16th in Fremont at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church – Delaney Hall.

A Guide to Excellence in Dementia Communication
9:15 am or 1:15 pm – Professional
5:30 pm – Family

Learn how to provide persons with dementia the gifts of pleasure, purpose and peace – while making measurable impacts on clinical and operational goals related to psychotropic use and behavioral outcomes, fall rates, team member morale and family satisfaction. This skill-based system – with coaching modules for each team member and the challenges they face – has been described by many communities as their ‘missing link’ to culture transformation.

Professional Series Thursday, April 16th (Choose one session)
9:15 am – 12:30 pm OR 1:15 pm – 4:30pm

Most health care professionals enter the field because they genuinely love elders. They honestly like assisting those who need some help with daily functions. But, genuine desires to be a good caregiver can get covered over, at times, with the challenges of the work itself.

This program will focus on issues like:
• Describe how Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias damage the brain, including thought process, communication, and memory – plus strategies for helping other team members retain this information.
• Demonstrate simple and effective dementia communication skills and scenarios – with a special emphasis on techniques known to reduce frustration and agitation, thereby reducing the frequency and intensity of behavioral symptoms of dementia.
• Discuss how dementia communication skills for the whole team can be an important strategy toward anti psychotic reduction and culture transformation.
