LIVE Interactive Webinar Training: Alzheimer’s Disease: Beyond Signs and Symptoms
September 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
This LIVE interactive webinar workshop describes the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, as well as risk factors and medication used to delay cognitive decline and neuropsychiatric symptoms. We then explore the world of a caregiver and how they are affected by the disease both emotionally and financially. To gain a deeper understanding of the individual living with dementia and their loved ones, this training also explores behaviors, unmet needs, and how to build a relationship that is based on respect, empathy, and maintaining one’s dignity. Attendees may ask and answer questions throughout the presentation and participate in instructor-led discussions, as well as case vignette discussions, and a Q&A session at the end.
