Objectives: • Analyze the impact of dementia on brain structure and function, and determine the difference between “normal forgetfulness” and cognitive impairment. • Differentiate dementias from one another by identifying manifestations of each type. • Articulate differences between the Folstein Mini-Mental Status examination and SLUMS and effectively utilize them as screening measure tools for cognitive impairment and dementia. • Employ adaptable behavioral interventions that can provide patients with individualized care and promote more effective participation in therapy. Investigate the concept of caregiver guilt and its implications for the client, clinicians, and those caring for older adults with dementia. • Correlate patients’ strengths and limitations to potential therapeutic approaches when developing treatment plans for older adults with dementia.
