Detailed Description
Offering comprehensive dementia training, this DVD will help professional and frontline caregivers better understand the behaviors and symptoms of people with dementia while building or improving their caregiving skills. A master training team consisting of an occupational therapist and nurse practitioner introduces a powerfully effective new way of thinking about and caring for older adults with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. The focus is on teaching state-of-the-art quality care that provides the highest quality of life for long-term care residents.

Divided into four separate modules for progressive learning,Accepting the Challenge provides training on multiple levels for all learning styles. Interactive classroom lecture and demonstration, for example, is followed by on-site interactions with actual assisted living residents to show both the use and effectiveness of the techniques.

  • Module 1: What is dementia? / Symptoms of Alzheimer's
  • Module 2: Physical Approach / Communication Skills
  • Module 3: Offering Assistance / Evaluating Cognitive Levels
  • Module 4: Meaningful Days (Activities) / Problem Behavior
