Trauma-Informed Elder Care
Wednesday, May 8, 2019 - 9 am to 4:30 pm
Quality of life and longevity is influenced by toxic stress experienced in childhood and throughout adult life. There is increasing evidence that life stress is linked to Dementia and Alzheimer’s.
In this training, we will also look at the factors that are scientifically proven to make us resilient against cognitive and physical decline, such as a positive outlook.
Undertanding how to provide trauma-informed elder care not only prevents further trauma, but also ensures the safety, dignity and agency older people need to thrive.
Topics covered in the training include:
- Childhood trauma and ACES
- Trauma and the brain
- Cumulative effects of toxic stress
- How toxic stress and trauma manifest in older adults
- Principles of trauma-informed care
- Nervous system regulation for caregivers and older adults
This is our general trauma training adapted for those providing elder care.
