Shifting Our Views of “Behaviors” Related to Dementia

Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

2pm EST, 1pm CST, 12pm MST, 11am PST, 7pm London

Today we had the privilege of having Geert Bettinger, from the Netherlands on the show with us.  He is the Author of “Moving on by standing still,” a different view of Problem behaviors.  I had two Co-Hosts join me; Harry Urban and Laurie Scherrer who both live with a diagnosis of dementia.

Saying we had an interesting conversation is an understatement.  Listen and learn how shifting your perceptions can shift your outcomes.
