Responsive Behaviors That Challenge

Persons with dementia have their own reality. When their care partners have a certain expectation or a planned agenda which may, or may not suit the person with dementia, this often creates a situation of “responsive behaviors.” The aim of this workshop is to provide participants with an understanding of these responsive behaviors and how to manage them. The Personhood Model of Care will be introduced.
