1 FREE CE-HOUR:
DEMENTIA BEHAVIORS AND NON-PHARMACOLOGICAL INTERVENTIONS
Wednesday, September 22 | 11 A.M.
Dementia’s deteriorating effects on the brain cause neurotransmitter disturbances, neuron damage and poor integrative function that often manifest in challenging behaviors. Understanding how a person’s cognitive deficits impact their functional ability helps care providers choose appropriate non-pharmacological approaches to calm, reassure and communicate with them.
Upon completion of this course, participants will better understand:
• How dementia can affect the brain, body, personality and behaviors
• Goals of non-pharmacological therapies
• Various types of non-pharmacological interventions
• How to manage challenging behaviors with non-pharmacological approaches
Registration closes 30 minutes prior to session.
