Dr. Jennifer Carson from UNR presented a 2-day seminar, Bravo Zulu, covering relationship-centered care. 18 attendees learned much about caring for loved ones, listening carefully to wants and needs, and following through to make sure that wishes are met. 

While those who care for people with Alzheimer's or other dementias often use diversion to redirect a conversation or repetitive request, Bravo Zulu provides ways to dig deeper, ask questions, and put forth effort to meet unmet needs that are aggravating a situation. 

Bravo Zulu focuses on love, respect, and dignity. What an awesome opportunity to promote understanding and expand knowledge.
