Alzheimer's Disease Level 1 & 2 For Assisted Living Facilities

Behavioral Therapy For Dementia Patients

  When we think of Alzheimer's disease or other dementias, we think of the loss of memory or the inability to recognize familiar faces, places and things.  But for caregivers, the challenge is often coping with the other behaviors common in dementia.

The list of common behaviors:

Paranoia - A disorder in which the person is overly suspicious of others, is convinced that other people have intent to harm; theme is usually a financial matter or unfaithful spouse.

Sundowning - A condition in which older persons tend to become more restless and/or confused later in the day, especially late afternoon or at dusk.
 
Wandering - Aimless movement, often it is an effort to get to some specific place such as a childhood home that no longer exists.
 
Wayfinding: Searching for something that may or may not be found in the residence.
 
Learning how to communicate calmly and clearly, as well as to introduce activities and hobbies have been shown to be amoung the best treatment options used by caregivers.  In our program Alzheimer's Disease Level 1 & 2 we explain the following content:
 
1.   How the brain works and how AD affects the brain.

2.   How memory loss from AD and other related disorders differs from normal aging.
 
3.   Other neurological diseases/conditions that can cause dementia.
      
4.   Conditions or disorders that may result in symptoms that mimic AD.
 
5.   How AD is diagnosed. x Causes, cures, and research overview.
 
6.   Stages of AD.
 
7.   Symptoms and behaviors associated with each stage.
 
8.   Challenges for caregivers at each stage. 
 
9.    How AD affects communication skills.
 
10.  Strategies and guidelines for verbal/nonverbal communication.
 
11.  Validation therapy.
 
Alzheimer's disease is the sixth leading cause of death in this country.  The Alzheimer's Association estimates that by 2050, nearly 16 million Americans will have Alzheimer's disease.  With numbers as large as these our caregivers must be informed on how to communicate effectively with this growing population to ensure a meaningful and respectful plan of care.  At Nevco, we continue to improve the quality of life through our education and offer these new programs for all your learning needs.

Behavior Challenges In Alzheimer's Disease Part 3

Behavior Challenges In Alzheimer's Disease Part 3

We are now fulfilling orders for our new program Alzheimer’s Disease (ADRD4) for home health agencies. If you currently have ADRD3 that program will expire and not be able to receive CEUs. If you wish to be current with your training you must receive the new training curriculum.  Give us a call at 1-800-252-5604 ex1 and we will answer any questions you may have.

In our next few blogs we will discuss various challenging behaviors that may present during the course of Alzheimer’s disease.  It’s important to educate yourself that the disease is the cause of these behavioral changes. Knowledge of these changes as part of the disease promotes understanding between the client, family caregiver, and healthcare provider.
