About Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, degenerative neurological disease that destroys a person’s memory and ability to function independently over time. Confusion and memory loss are the hallmark symptoms of each stage. The Alzheimer’s Association (2021) currently estimates that approximately 6 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, and the disease kills more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. It is also estimated that the disease itself is underdiagnosed, meaning the actual incidence of Alzheimer’s disease is probably much higher. Considering these numbers, you will likely interact with or provide care to persons with Alzheimer’s disease and need to be knowledgeable about the disease process and care strategies. This course will provide an overview of Alzheimer’s disease and strategies for person-centered care for those with Alzheimer’s disease.
