Green Clock Hours: 1.00

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) has a high prevalence in older adults but is rarely assessed in older adults with dementia in post-acute care settings. These individuals often may not be able to articulate their symptoms. Left untreated, a person with BPPV will be at higher risk for a fall and may limit participation in therapy and meaningful activities.
