Description: Dementia continues to be one of the most frightening and disheartening diagnoses a person can receive. Those struggling with de- mentia often face a lack of respect for their humanity, leading to limitations in their rights to make choices, as well as their ability to be included in so- ciety, and to access their surroundings. Stigma and shame compound their existential isolation. This presentation discusses the scope, causes, and manifestations of dementia and the pharmacological and non-pharmaco- logical 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 healthcare providers.
This program meets the 2022 Mass. BORN re-licensure requirement for dementia training.
