Dementia Education and Training for Family

Dementia Consulting

As a Dementia Consultant, Janet offers services in Dallas-Fort Worth and surrounding counties.  Janet provides individual and family consultations to help work through the unique and specific problems as a care partner. Janet meets with family members/care partners, in their home or other place of choice, to discuss their needs while providing guidance and support.
The care partners learn about dementia and improve their understanding which helps prepare for the dementia-related changes and challenges. Through interactive participation and training, Janet provides care tips and teaches the family specific hands-on techniques, skills, and approaches to use with their loved one.  These techniques are designed to improve communication and increase their loved one’s participation during activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring, ambulating, grooming, and eating.

The family /care partners learn how to make environmental changes and use specific strategies to reduce refusals, agitation, and other difficult “behaviors” that their loved one may exhibit. Overall goal is to minimize the stress with both the family and their loved one so that they can enjoy the moments together as a family.
