But whatever your profession, proper skills and understanding of the disease is needed to work with this population. Without the appropriate training, safety risks grow and opportunities to improve care and quality of life are missed. This essential training program will provide you with the tools, strategies, and practices you need to best serve patients facing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In just one day you’ll learn how you can better assess for and differentiate between different types of dementias, overcome the communication issues that can obstruct quality care, work more collaboratively with family and caregivers, maximize daily functioning, and safely and effectively intervene when difficult behaviors arise. 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.
