Description

The nature and location of neuropathological changes in the brain give rise to deficits in perception, reasoning and function. Behavioral manifestations frequently seen in dementia stem from neurotransmitter disturbances, neuronal damage and poor integrative function throughout the brain.  Understanding the relationship between cognitive deficits and the clients’ functional ability gives care providers a more effective foundation for understanding behavioral issues and developing effective solutions for care. Examples of specific cognitive deficits and the unique care issues that follow will be discussed

This content is suitable for both beginning and intermediate levels.  There is an introduction to behaviors in dementia, which is necessary and appropriate for beginners.  It also applies to intermediate levels as it expands upon the introductory level, focusing on varying interventions to be implemented.
