Webinar- Transforming Dementia Care

November 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The Alzheimer’s Association will highlight our newly released Alzheimer’s Association Dementia Care Practice Recommendations that outline quality care practices based on a comprehensive review of current evidence, best practices and expert opinions designed for professional care providers.  These recommendations will inform and influence dementia care standards, training, practice and policy from a person-centered focus.  We will also help decipher and understand dementia-related behaviors and determine how best to respond through non pharmacological approaches to care.

Learning Objectives:

  1. By the end of this presentation attendees will understand the importance of evidence-based recommendations for health care professionals across the continuum of long-term services and supports for people with Alzheimer’s and related dementias.
  2.  List the 4 step process for intervention in addressing dementia related behaviors.
  3. List the five most common behaviors encountered for those providing direct care for those with ADRD.

Presenter: Jill Curtis, Education and Outreach Coordinator with the Greater PA Chapter Alzheimer’s Association and Kellie Butsack, Associate Director of Programs with the Delaware Valley Chapter Alzheimer’s Association.
