The Kensington Falls Church is a family of families who cares deeply about each other. We are committed to improving the quality of life for seniors as well as the professionals who care for them. That is why we are proud to partner with Dr. William Mansbach and the BCAT® Research Center for this topical CEU Workshop on Innovative Ways of Reducing Sundowning & Late Day Confusion (LDC) in Individuals with Dementia.
Late-day confusion, or sundowning, is arguable among the most challenging dementia-related issues for aging individuals and their caregivers and families. Poorly understood and generally ineffectively managed, late-day confusion is a phenomenon in need of a better care model. Join us for this complimentary workshop where Dr. Mansbach will explain what late-day confusion looks like, discuss its primary cause, define exacerbating conditions, and present a practical care model for memory care experts, programs, and caregivers.
Don’t miss this opportunity to ask questions and become more familiar with Late Day Confusion. Participants will learn how to:
- Recognize common symptoms that define late-day confusion.
- Learn causes and exacerbating conditions of late-day confusion.
- Apply a new model of care to residential and everyday situations.
- Identify specific environmental contributors to late-day confusion.
The workshop will earn licensed professionals
