Envisioning the Future of Person-Centered Dementia Care from a Pandemic Perspective

 featuring Doctors Al Power, Dan Potts and Jonathan Evans

Wednesday, September 2, 2020

3:00 – 4:00 EDT

 

This amazing session features a TRIO of renowned physicians who are thought leaders in the world of human-centered, person-directed and relationship-based care and support for people who are living with dementia and those who care for and about them. It includes a reflection on all things dementia now that the world as we know it has been forever changed by COVID-19.

Dr Al Power will discuss Beyond “BPSD”: A Well-Being Approach. The shortcomings of this approach will be clarified, and a proactive, strengths-based approach to understanding distress will be shared, including recent initiatives that show how the two views can lead to drastically different outcomes.

Dr. Dan Potts will share Lester’s Legacy: Finding the Artist Within. He will focus on personhood and humanity, and the spiritual and holistic aspects of living with dementia. He will highlight what he discovered from his Dad and his art, what it taught him, and what he learned from others who are living with dementia. He will share some philosophical and spiritual ideas that can help to support sustained culture change.

Dr. Jonathan Evans will present A Critique of the Past, Present and Future of Dementia Care from a COVID-19 Lens.  He will explain the fundamental mismatch between care needs and care delivery based largely on false assumptions about dementia, as well as an unwillingness or inability to restructure care delivery. He will lay out how the COVID era has ushered in widespread confusion and misunderstanding, causing devastating losses caused by social isolation and physical distancing. He will close by sharing what the future MUST BE for people who are living with dementia and what it actually means for care and caring in this new world.

Envisioning the Future: 2020 and Beyond won’t be your typical, sit in front of the computer    and watch a screen type of event. Instead, you’ll be part of the action. Each day will start with an opportunity for attendees to gather together to kick off the day. Mid-day, we will again come together for the daily keynote session. In between, there will be concurrent sessions addressing the hottest topics of the day, And at the end of each day, there will be an opportunity to gather around virtual tables with fellow pioneers, sharing information and envisioning the future together.

Our interactive exhibit hall will be the place to go to learn about products and services for your communities and organizations, and to meet people who are providing innovative solutions to help you meet the challenges of the day.

There will be some surprises and special events that will pop-up over the three days, not to mention opportunities to engage with fellow attendees before and even after the live event.

We invite you to join the Pioneer Network team and your friends next door — or around the globe — as we take this virtual journey together to Envision the Future: 2020 and Beyond.
