Coping with Caregiving - Providing Effective Care for a Person with Dementia
During the event, we looked at how to provide effective care for a person with dementia. Being a caregiver for a person diagnosed with dementia can be one of the most challenging roles in our society - but there’s help for those who need it. Dr. Anthony Levinson and Dr. Richard Sztramko from McMaster University together discuss strategies and resources for caregivers to keep in mind when caring for a person with dementia.
