Join us for this virtual four-part series on the Best Friends Approach to Dementia Care!
Best Friends is a person-centered, compassionate dementia care approach grounded in the understanding that relationships are supremely important in dementia care and that participants require the essential elements of friendship: respect, empathy, support, trust, and humor. With Best Friends, the focus is on the individual—the person’s rights, history, and relationships with all care partners. We find that this philosophy improves the quality of life for our participants and caregivers!
