Summit Resilience Training was created for families and professional caregivers who have patients and family with dementia and other associated diseases. Summit offers Dementia coping strategies for Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body, and Frontal Temporal through Resilience Training techniques. We teach you how to strategize and develop coping techniques to effectively navigate through the stresses of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s Dementia. Resilience is the ability to adapt to adversity and look for solutions to improve outcomes. These courses are designed to help caregivers and individuals with Alzheimer’s Dementia learn and utilize the best methods to be able to interact with their environments and with any issues caused by health and dementia related behaviors which can produce hardship. In turn, to also create the processes that either promote well-being or protect them against the overwhelming influence of risk factors which could negatively affect their own health as well.
Jill Lorentz’s mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at the age of 58. Jill got to know the disease, its symptoms and challenging behaviors until her mom died, 23 years later at the age of 81. Jill pursued the training to understand and cope with the disease, which ultimately led her into a business of her own.
Our classes offer practical advice and encouragement to manage the stresses of living with dementia. By the end of the instructional hands-on programs, you will discover that your actions can, and will, affect your ability to cope, make good choices, and create positive outcomes for you and the ones you love.
Do you need advice on the best practices for setting up your home environment for peace of mind, safety and functionality? Common issues arise like how to handle wandering, help your loved ones find their way around, simplify surroundings for success and identify daily activity preferences.
