Security is More Than an Alarm System
We tend to think of security in terms of safety issues, such as falls or leaving the building unattended. But much of the challenge to security comes from everyday features of the care environment that can be easily improved. Understanding how to increase a sense of security is essential to dispel anxiety, suspicion, and fears.
In spite of growing awareness of the lower benefits and higher risks of antipsychotic drug use in people living with dementia, we cannot successfully reduce these medications until we find more effective approaches to care. According to Dr. Al Power, award-winning author of Dementia Beyond Drugs, the true key to sustained success is enhancing well-being. In this 6-part webinar series, Dr. Power will describe how the Eden Alternative Domains of Well-Being provide a powerful framework for caring for people who live with dementia. This new approach offers successful outcomes, where others, including other person-directed approaches, have fallen short.
