CEU Course Description
The CDC predicts that some form of dementia will impact 14 million Americans by 2060. This means the number of Americans with the disease will nearly triple in the next three decades. Dementia requires specialized treatment because it can have a widespread effect on an individual’s ability to engage in ADLs, IADLs, leisure, socialization, and other meaningful activities. As a result, healthcare providers (especially occupational therapists) must be well-versed in the basics of the disease and how to effectively provide client-centered care to individuals with dementia. OTs working in geriatrics are the most likely to encounter patients living with dementia. This is why all geriatric professionals and those who work exclusively with those who have dementia should possess a repertoire of intervention strategies to support these individuals and their caregivers. This will help maximize their quality of life, sustain their independence, and slow the progression of the disease.
