2018 NADRC Webinar: June 26, 2018
Finding the Balance: Enhancing Self-Efficacy in Persons with Dementia

Few attributes of personhood are more protected than self-determination, and few fears more troubling than the fear of losing independence. For people with dementia this can be particularly intense. Using stories taken from experience, the presenter illustrates why preserving autonomy and enhancing self-efficacy in people with dementia are important. The presentation also addresses ways professionals can support individuals living with dementia—and their families—in making decisions, even in the context of diminished decision-making capacity.

Presenter: Dr. Susan Wehry.
