Dementia Therapies & Interventions

It is reported that 90% of people with dementia will have at least one behavioral or psychotic symptom over the course of their disease, which pose great risk and the current medications used for these treatments have modest effects. Our video, Dementia Therapies and Interventions, talk about the use and effectiveness of both medical and non-medical interventions for persons with dementia.

Improving Safety & Quality of Life for Persons with Dementia

Quality of life (QOL) is a primary treatment goal for persons living with dementia and their families. Factors shown to influence QOL include mood, engagement in pleasant activities and ability to perform activities of daily living. Sensory input and processing, and judgement deficits that occur in dementia patients have a great impact on their QOL and their safety. This training video addresses interventions and tools that help maintain a QOL for dementia patients and their families. Special considerations for patients living alone or who don’t have a primary caregiver are discussed along with community and professional resources.
