Vancouver Graduate Shares Advice on Caring for the Elderly in Insights Magazine

Ros Clark Best, a graduate of the Master of Counselling Psychology program in Vancouver, was recently profiled in the Spring 2019 issue of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors’ Insights Magazine. Best, who worked as a high school teacher for 24 years before becoming a counsellor, has extensive experience with people with learning differences such as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), dementia, and chronic disabilities.

In the feature, she discusses how therapists and family members can better care for the elderly, especially those who may be experiencing dementia or Alzheimer’s.

“When, as family members and therapists, we understand how the body works with aging, we can focus on the emotional bond more and not fuss about lengthy explanations and challenging false beliefs,” said Best.

Read more insights about dementia care in the BC Association article, “Connection Is Possible: Supporting Clients with Dementia and Their Families.”
