Prescribing Assistive Devices for the Patient with Dementia
Prescribing Assistive Devices for the Patient with Dementia
$15.00

Determining if an assistive device (AD) will benefit a patient with dementia can be a challenge. Therapists must consider the whole person—What is their current level of cognitive and physical function? What level of physical support do they need? Would a mobility device actually INCREASE their risk of falling? Is there a better option? In this course, learners will explore this decision-making process to make evidence-based decisions for assistive devices for patients with dementia. Considerations for caregiver and interdisciplinary team training and interventions when an AD is not appropriate are presented.
