Join us for our 36th iGeriCare Live Event, we will discuss the vital role that personal support workers play in helping caregivers of persons with dementia provide better care for their loved ones. This time, Dr. Anthony Levinson will be joined by Miranda Ferrier, who is the CEO of the Ontario Personal Support Workers and Canadian Support Workers Associations.
Together we will delve into the specific ways in which personal support workers can assist caregivers, including providing hands-on care for dementia patients, offering respite for caregivers, and helping to manage the challenging behaviours associated with dementia. Additionally, our experts will discuss the concerns that caregivers may have when working with personal support workers, such as issues of trust and communication, and offer tips for addressing these concerns.
The first 15 minutes will be set aside for this discussion and followed by a Q&A period.
