Description: Dementia continues to be one of the most frightening and disheartening diagnoses a person can receive. Those struggling with dementia often face a lack of respect for their humanity, leading to limitations in their rights to make choices, be included in society, and access their surroundings. Stigma and shame compound their existential isolation. This presentation discusses the scope, causes, and manifestations of dementia and the pharmacological and nonpharmacological interventions available to assist those with dementia. It will address the need for holistic care for individuals with dementia and their caregivers, including family, community, and health care providers. This program meets the 2022 MA BORN re-licensure requirement for dementia training.
