Dementia Care: Coaching and Completing Activities of Daily Living

 

Activities of daily living (ADLs) are the basic life skills learned during childhood. Persons with dementia, however, will slowly forget or “unlearn” how to complete these tasks as cognitive impairment progresses. Because of this decline in ability, individuals in the middle to later stages of dementia will require assistance from you for completion of these tasks. This course will help you better understand how to assist persons with dementia with ADL completion. In this course, you will learn the various levels of functional ability in persons with dementia as well as the guidelines you must follow when providing care.
