Older adults with dementia and other mental health issues interact with a variety of professionals including nursing staff, psychologists, counsellors, social workers, OTs, PTs, SLPs, home health aides, adult day centre staff, and first responders. Still, many haven’t had extensive training on the complexities that make working with this population so challenging.
Without appropriate training, safety risks grow and opportunities to improve care and quality of life are missed.
This 2-day comprehensive recording is a must-have for anyone working with older adult patients facing Alzheimer’s Disease, other dementias, and mental health issues like anxiety and depression. You’ll discover how you can assess for and differentiate between different types of dementias, maximize daily functioning, better work with significant mental health issues like anxiety, depression and substance use in older patients, and safely and effectively intervene when difficult behaviours arise.
No matter your profession, you can’t afford to miss this chance to get the skills, tactics, and knowledge you need to provide the best care possible!
