Description

Persons with Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia frequently exhibit behaviors that are difficult to understand, manage and treat.  Perhaps the most challenging is when the patient acts out with physical or verbal aggression.  This program will help professionals understand and prevent these behaviors.  The program will also offer strategies for minimizing and eliminating aggressive behavior, increasing quality of life for the patient and making the caregiving experience less stressful for families. 

 

This course is suitable for both beginning and intermediate levels. There is relevance as it provides information on stages of dementia and behaviors associated. It also applies to intermediate levels as it expands upon the introductory level, focusing on the strategies and insights into the causes and method for working with individuals as behaviors arise.
