Fairmont Care
5061 N. Pulaski Rd., Chicago, IL 60630

Transitions can cause stress or anxiety for many of us, whether it is a move, participating in a new activity or being in an unfamiliar environment. People living with dementia process transitions in a unique way. Stress or anxiety can manifest in problematic behaviors such as verbal or physical outbursts, refusal or anger. Together we will share how can healthcare providers can plan for smooth transitions, minimize confusion and combative behaviors for clients with dementia. Learn new strategies and interventions to support wellness for your clients and team!
