Supports for people living with dementia and their families are most effective when they are person-centered and the result of a thoughtful planning process that considers what is important to them. When guiding providers on how to deliver high quality support, it is important to use a clear and engaging approach to discover and address people’s priorities as dementia progresses. This webinar presents foundational person-centered principles, and provides examples of how to plan for people who are living with dementia in the community and other settings. ~ Speakers: Shawn Terrell of ACL; Leigh Ann Kingsbury; and Brian Van Buren.
