Come to participate in this free training initiated by the community of Saint-Martin.
This training improves the understanding of the disease and its manifestations. In this way, it promotes the dissemination of good practices of care by helping relatives to acquire the gestures and the behaviors adapted to the everyday situations.
1. WHO SHOULD ATTEND ?
The training is for family caregivers who accompany a person with Alzheimer's disease or a related illness on a day-to-day basis. The family carer is faced with a fourfold emotional, psychological, physical and financial burden. The sick person requires vigilance that progressively mobilizes the 24 caregiver hours on 24 and that leads to situations of physical and psychological exhaustion.
2. WHY TRAINING?
The community of Saint-Martin, through the local health contract, wants to accompany family caregivers of Alzheimer's patients (and related diseases), whose number increases each year.
• Family caregivers want to acquire knowledge and skills to accompany patients with dignity. They are looking for solutions to help them manage everyday life.
• Knowledge about the mechanisms and manifestations of the disease can help them understand their loved ones' behavior (repetition of a sentence or gesture, changes in mood).
