Creating a Safe Living Environment: Safety Adaptations for People with Dementia
For a person with memory loss, changes in perception, behavior, and abilities can lead to safety issues. Learn how each room in a home or care community can pose unique hazards, and how to create a calm and safe environment for the person with memory loss, including the use of adaptive equipment.

At the completion of the course, the participant will be able to:
- Recognize the changes associated with dementia that can lead to safety issues in a home or care facility
- Describe three modifications that can facilitate a safe environment for an individual with dementia
- Identify strategies that reduce wandering behaviors among individuals with dementia
