An introduction to trauma-informed dementia care.

More than 70 percent of older people have experienced a psychologically traumatic event. The effects of these events can continue into late life, and the onset of dementia can interact with trauma-related needs in important ways.

In this webinar, Dr Monica Cations provides practical advice on how to deliver safe and accessible care for people with dementia who have experience traumatic events. You’ll learn about the wide-ranging effects of psychological trauma in older adulthood and be introduced to trauma-informed care.
