Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia are becoming an epidemic
amongst our aging seniors, and even more so now, young adults. It's imperative
as healthcare professionals to truly understand this disease in order to
provide the best quality care. Dr. Jennifer Stelter, Clinical Psychologist, and
Jessica Ryan, Biologist, from NeuroEssence, LLC at the Dementia Connection Institute, will review in this live webinar what is
dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, the symptoms associated, and what
happens as the disease progresses, as well as treatment and non-pharmacological
approaches to care that have shown success by using the Dementia Connection
Model© developed by Dr. Stelter. Learn communications strategies and how to handle challenging response behaviors with a number of tools
for your toolbox, while taking into consideration preferences and diversity.
