In LTC we all deal with dementia on a daily basis, but with the increased scrutiny from CMS about the use of antipsychotics and the research that is going on in dementia, it’s a great time for a new and different look at dementia. This presentation will focus on the three most common types of dementia, and how they affect the brain and patients differently. These differences should make the way we treat behaviors in these patients different. We will also discuss areas of research that are currently going on to see where the treatment of dementia may be headed in the future.
- Understand Alzheimer's and other dementias in the US.
- Learn basic brain structure/function and the changes involved with the 3 most common types of dementia
- Discover brain-based strategies for common behavioral challenges encountered in dementia
