Description: Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive and global brain disease that poses numerous challenges for the person affected by the illness and their care providers. Keeping the person safe through proactive planning and adaption of the home environment will allow individuals and family members to assume control over potential problems so that they do not evolve into actual emergencies. This program will utilize lecture, case study and video presentations to inform the learner about successful strategies to anticipate and avoid safety hazards in homes where an individual is living with a progressive memory loss illness.
