In this episode, I’m joined by Christy Turner, the Dementia Sherpa, to discuss how to use the technique of Addition Before Subtraction to help you make your interactions with those who have Alzheimer’s or another dementia more successful.
By using addition before subtraction, you can avoid potential confrontation and negative outcomes, and turn these situations into enriching times together.
In case you’re new, Christy Turner, the Dementia Sherpa, is a regular guest on The Alzheimer’s Podcast.
She is a Certified Dementia Practitioner, Certified Dementia Care Unit Manager, and Cognitive Stimulation Instructor. She has run award-winning memory care communities in assisted living and skilled nursing levels of care.
Using her 16 years of experience in working with over 1,100 people living with dementia and their families, she’s developed a system that helps families move from crisis management to confidence.
I hope you enjoy this episode.
