Creating Well-Being

In spite of growing awareness of the lower benefits and higher risks of antipsychotic drug use in people living with dementia, we cannot successfully reduce these medications until we find more effective approaches to care. According to Dr. Al Power, award-winning author of Dementia Beyond Drugs, the true key to sustained success is enhancing well-being. This 6-part webinar series will describe how the Eden Alternative Domains of Well-Being™ provide a powerful framework for caring for people who live with dementia. This new approach offers successful outcomes, where others, including other person-directed approaches, have fallen short.

Webinar #1: The Big Picture

September 10, 2013, 3-4 pm ET

This first webinar will outline the seven Eden Alternative Domains of Well-Being™ and how they provide an important key to understanding how to meet the needs of those living with different cognitive abilities.  The webinar concludes with a brief, optional discussion with our sponsor, IN2L. 


Webinar #2: Seeing & Relating to the Whole Person

October 8, 2013, 3-4 pm ET

This second webinar will discuss how identity is challenged, both intrinsically and extrinsically. We will look at stigmas surrounding dementia and overcoming barriers to make meaningful connections, even when memory or language becomes challenged.


Webinar #3: Security is More Than an Alarm System

November 12, 2013, 3-4 pm ET

We tend to think of security in terms of safety issues, but much of the challenge to security comes from everyday features of the care environment that can be easily improved. Understanding how to increase a sense of security is essential to dispel anxiety, suspicion, and fears.


Webinar #4: Understanding the Many Levels of Autonomy

December 10, 2013, 3-4 pm ET
Autonomy is a domain that is challenged early, and often severely, as a result of societal stigmas surrounding dementia. Autonomy, however, can be created on many levels, and most people have the ability to make choices, with proper communication and support.  

Webinar #5: Defining Purpose, Meaning, & Growth

January 7, 2014, 3-4 pm ET

Meaning and Growth are often the most difficult domains to visualize for people living with dementia. This fifth webinar will highlight how to approach these very important domains, and how they can underlie some of the hardest-to-decipher forms of distress.


Webinar #6: Creating Joy by Decoding Distress

February 4, 2014, 3-4 pm ET

Looking at the Eden Alternative Domains of Wellbeing™, it can be said that the first six domains, together, provide a pathway to joy. This sixth and final webinar of the series will explore the domain of Joy and a radically different way to use all seven domains to create sustained success in drug reduction efforts, even in the most challenging situations. The webinar concludes with a brief, optional discussion with our sponsor, IN2L.
