Dealing with Dementia

The Dealing with Dementia Program is an evidence informed educational support program for caregivers of people living with dementia. The program includes: 

  • A four hour workshop in a classroom setting for either family or professional caregivers of people living with dementia.
  • The Dealing with Dementia Guide, a 360 page comprehensive manual for dementia caregivers. 
  • An overview of the guide and how to find the information needed when it is needed. 
  • Highlights of topics such as insights into the caregiving experience, easily understandable explanation of dementia, best practices in caregiving, problem solving around dementia behaviors, and tips for caregivers to find time for self-care and stress management. 

The guides and the workshops are available in English and Spanish. 

Only DWD Trainers have access to purchasing the guides so caregivers are encouraged to find a workshop near them.
