Coaching a Loved One Into Care

At times, it can be difficult to talk to a Veteran about seeking help. Pride, the military culture, and the stigma around mental health can prevent Veterans from getting the assistance they need. This course equips caregivers with tools to identify potential struggles, and better understand problems with traditional approaches like ultimatums and forceful discussions. The techniques provided, including alternative goals to consider when talking to your Veteran, will breakdown barriers and enhance conversations about well-being. This course also includes concrete examples of what you can do.

    Oh, interpreted the topic title as showing how the veteran (with Alzheimers or dementia) might be directed towards moving from home to a memory care group home or some type of facility for more professional care. 😉 Thanks!
