Event Details

The Chatham County Council on Aging has a Dementia Workshop scheduled for November 15th, 1-3 pm at our Western Chatham Senior Center in Siler City.  Melanie Bunn, RN, with Alzheimers NC will be leading the workshop.


“Do You Know Who I Am?” is an Alzheimer’s and related dementia training program for professional caregivers. It is participatory, interactive, and innovative in its approach.
Participants will learn how to work with individuals with dementia, especially Alzheimer’s in a way that is more rewarding for the professional caregiver and more empathetic to the needs of the individual who is under their care.
This interactive training prepares participants to be able to:
  • Understand the disease process
  • Identify and experience common dementia behaviors
  • Apply effective communication and approach techniques
  • Implement failure-free Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) techniques

Upon completion of this training, participants will have gained the necessary tools to create a successful day for themselves and for the special people for whom they provide care.
