This online event U-First, hosted by the Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region, is an innovative education program for all members of the care team who are supporting people with behaviour changes due to dementia or other cognitive impairment. This includes health care providers in a direct care role and care partners (family and friends).

The U-First! Framework is a person-centred approach to looking at the whole person. U-First! for Care Partners is a 6 hour education program that will help you to build confidence and skills to:

- Enhance your well-being and that of the person you are supporting who is experiencing behaviour changes.

- Reduce responsive behaviours by using the U-First! framework.

- Improve collaboration among all team members through a common knowledge, language and approach to care.

Participants are required to attend all 3 sessions. www.alzheimerniagara.ca/online
