CEU full course description
Cognitively impaired patients bring a set of challenges for the clinician that can compromise successful outcomes of the rehabilitation course and create difficult challenges in the long-term care setting. Utilizing six dementia care levels, course participants will learn how to assess and treat functional deficits of the cognitively impaired older adult. By the end of the session, participants will be able to quickly assess a patient’s cognitive level (within 15 minutes of observation), as well as identify further in-depth assessment, documentation, and treatment strategies.
