Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders: Behavior Management

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

The personality and behavioral changes that commonly accompany Alzheimer’s disease are one of the greatest challenges for caregivers. Choosing the appropriate response for the behavior involves using person-centered care strategies. Your response to behaviors can make a big difference in the quality of life for a person with Alzheimer’s disease. Keep in mind that every individual with Alzheimer’s disease is a unique person with varying abilities and needs that change over time as the disease progresses (Alzheimer’s Association, 2016). In this course, you will learn about behavioral symptoms as a form of communication, the role that understanding the meaning of these behaviors plays in providing person-centered care, 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.
