Travels with My Aunt & Take the Scenic Route is a novel approach to helping people communicate and cope with dementia. 

Susan Wranik presents dementia in the metaphor of travel to a foreign country: different language, strange customs, and a new time zone. Coupling her clinical experience with twenty years as a caregiver, Susan utilizes real life stories to illustrate the changes accompanying dementia and share methods for improving communication each step along the way.

Participants will have a better understanding of:
» staging dementia
» behavior as communication
» therapeutic intervention strategies
» changes in eating patterns
» language to help family members embrace the changes
This is an interactive program where participants are invited to share and stage their own stories and problem solve. Designed to help people minimize stress and enjoy time together... because dementia is a journey, not a destination.
