Brain Health & Dementia: Caring for CaLD people living with Dementia
62% of people with dementia whose main language is not English, and 36% of care attendees in residential aged care are from CaLD backgrounds. Cultures and languages influence how people view Dementia and respond to Dementia. We’d like to support those who have been diagnosed with dementia but are feeling confused and ashamed, and carers of dementia patients especially from different cultural backgrounds.
We will answer these questions and explore more about these topics from Brain Health & Dementia webinar series:
Do I really understand Dementia? It’s mental illness or brain disease?
Does Dementia mean losing memories?
What should I do when someone living with dementia keep pressing themselves down and isolating themselves?
Am I ready to work with older people with dementia and their family members?
