Description

Working with patients with dementia can be like talking on the phone with a bad connection – maybe some words get through, but maybe they don’t. For patients, it’s a call that never ends, and over time, behaviors such as wandering, aggression, and social withdrawal can take root with the decline of communication abilities. Where one-size-fits-all treatment protocols fail, individualized care can help patients communicate their wants and needs, as well as function in daily situations.

This seminar offers an exploration of the latest evidence-based treatments. Explore effective strategies for restoring impaired function and compensating for deficits that are not amenable to retraining. Learn cognition-focused interventions that have been shown to improve cognitive skills, functional abilities, and performance-based activities of daily living with lasting outcomes. See how to select assistive technologies and external memory aids based on your patients’ needs, and discover which options on the market work best.

Finally, this course will show you how to think “outside the box” and design custom therapies using what you have on hand, offering effective take-home solutions for clinicians who are working on a tight budget, or are frustrated with the limitations of generalizing products and techniques.
