Understand how to create moments of joy for people with Alzheimer’s

When someone has short-term memory loss their life is made up of moments. This means we cannot always create a wonderful day, but we can create a wonderful moment.

In this course you’ll find out how to encourage and enjoy such wonderful moments. You’ll get practical tips to ease the daily struggles of Alzheimer’s for those living with it, and those helping them. Ultimately you will learn how to look beyond the challenges of the disease and focus on creating the best possible life for those living with Alzheimer’s.

This course is for anyone caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease, or anyone who wants to know more about dealing with the effects of the disease. You don’t need any past experience.

Lucía completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
It was absolutely incredible. It opened my mind a lot. If you have a family member with Alzheimer's or Dementia, I absolutely recommend this course. You will be able to find strategies to make you and the person you're taking care of feel as good as possible.

Warning about the content: videos and articles say the same thing. I actually skipped most of the articles because it was repeated content.
