I Wanna Go Home”™
Dee Mayfield, TIP’s, CDP, NCCDP Trainer
Dee is a Certified Dementia Practitioner and recovering caregiver who will share her personal challenges and success as both a professional and a family dementia caregiver. With stories and instruction, Dee reviews common dementia behaviors and the role that healthy self-esteem and conflict management play in creating positive outcomes with interventions.
At the end of the conference, we will Dee-Stress with Dee! ™ Stress at best, makes us better; at worst, it makes us ill. Eliminating stress in not an option; what you DO with your stress IS an option. Stress is personal, you can put a band-aide on it; and/or you can take steps to become stress-hardy. Either way – FUN is a common stress-deminisher. Before leaving the conference, let’s have some fun and Dee-Stress With Dee.
