Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders: Behavior and ADL Management

 

The behavioral symptoms and functional decline that are commonly associated with Alzheimer’s disease are 2 of the greatest challenges for caregivers. Choosing the appropriate response in both areas involves using person-centered care strategies. In this course, you will learn the various levels of functional ability in persons with Alzheimer’s disease as well as the guidelines you must follow when providing care. In addition, you will learn about identifying the meaning of behaviors and strategies and techniques that you can use to address behavioral symptoms. While this course references Alzheimer’s disease, the concepts and interventions discussed can apply to all forms of dementia.
