Monday, November 13th 2017

PAST EVENT Join Waiting List

Visual cues are a very important form of communication between a caregiver and someone living with dementia.  If an environment is cluttered or distracting, verbal and touch cues become less effective.  A person living with a moderate (“Amber”) or advanced (“Ruby”, “Pearl”) level of dementia experiences rapid vision loss.  A clutter or hoarding problem can quickly present fall risks at every turn.

 The National Aging in Place Council will propose strategies for reducing clutter and improving visual stimuli, all while creating engaging activities that strengthens the bond between caregiver and care recipient.
