A Symposium for Professional Caregivers, Family Members & Other Stakeholders to Improve Quality of Life & Comfort for Residents With Dementia.
Jewish Home Lifecare, 120 W 106th St, NYC
Wednesday, November 13 or Thursday, November 14 9 A.M. – 3 P.M.
The goal of this symposium, supported by a generous grant from the Fan Fox & Leslie R. Samuels Foundation, is to create change in dementia care and antipsychotic drug use in nursing homes in New York City by educating care staff, family members and other resident representatives about this widespread (yet under-recognized) problem and equipping them with knowledge and skills they can use to help their patients and loved ones receive appropriate dementia care that is comforting and avoids unnecessary drugging.
