The BPSD Series: Addressing behaviours and psychological symptoms of dementia

 

Becoming reliant on care from others is a huge adjustment for anyone. It is even more so for someone living with dementia.

 

When consideration is given for the psychosocial influences of an associated behaviour, the result may not only be in identifying a cause, but also the creation of interventions that alleviate distress and provide more tailored support. A holistic, individual and flexible care approach has been recognised to make a difference in enhancing the quality of life for a person with dementia.

The BPSD Series provides participants with the opportunity to understand the importance of a psychosocial approach to dementia care and to develop and hone their skills in the following subjects:

  • Talking about dementia: language around BPSD
  • Advocacy for a holistic approach
  • Palliative and end-of-life care
  • Formulating interventions: holistic assessment
  • Causes of changes in behaviour
  • Supporting staff: implementing interventions
  • Holistic assessment
