Partnerships for Health understands the science behind dementia. Moreover, we acknowledge the evidence of effective interventions, and the important role of caregiving. These elements fuel our commitment to the evolution of dementia research and application. Our organization equips caregivers with the knowledge and skillsets to elevate dementia care.
This powerful combination helps equip the caregiver to adapt in challenging situations.
Dr. Heather McKay often starts with the basics; from explaining the difference between Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia to why people living with dementia do what they do. Dr. Heather McKay believes that a strong understanding of dementia itself prepares caregivers to provide the best care and achieve the best results with their patients.
Heather also covers various hands-on techniques and communication strategies that help engage people and improve relationships at every step of the disease. Many people have never heard straightforward explanations about these basic understandings.
