When caring for a loved one who has dementia, it sometimes may seem like he or she behaves as a child. But persons with dementia are grown ups who have lived full lives and should be treated as such. For tips on how to maintain your loved one’s dignity when their decision-making diminishes and behaviors are challenging, check out our FREE Virtual Book Club for Dementia Caregiver’s 3rd session below. It’s based on Chapter 3 of Cruising Through Caregiving: Reducing The Stress of Caring For Your Loved One and co-sponsored by Hilarity For Charity and Oasis Senior Advisors.
