If you have a loved one experiencing dementia, Idaho State University’s Continuing Education and Workforce Training is offering courses targeted on gaining a greater understanding of the symptoms and behaviors of dementia.

“After taking this course, people will have tools in their toolbox to effectively handle some of the behaviors their loved one displays,” Joanne Trammel, occupational therapist and one of the course’s instructors, said. “They will have resources for immediate help in crisis situations, support groups, etc. They will walk away knowing that having dementia does not have to be a stigma or something to be ashamed of but rather a challenge to overcome and now they have ways to handle the challenge better.”

There are three upcoming sections: Dementia Behaviors and Dementia Essentials.

On Feb. 17, Section 1 - Dementia Basics will provide attendees a broad overview of dementia and warning signs.

On March 13, Section 2 - Dementia Behaviors will dive more deeply into the stages of dementia and the difficult behaviors that may accompany them. Attendees will come away with strategies for how to deal with these behaviors and provide meaningful activities for their loved ones.

On April 14, Section 3 - Dementia Essentials will provide attendees with information for support to include caregiver support, legal support, community support and available resources.
