Approaches in Elder & Dementia Care

Air Date: 07/10/2014

It is increasingly recognized that pharmacological treatments for the elderly, especially with dementia, should be used as a second-line approach. Non-pharmacological options should, in best practice, be pursued first. This program will examine and discuss pharmacological and current non-pharmacological approaches in elder and dementia care. Discussion will include highlights of the more traditional treatments and the potential of interesting alternative options, such as the Montessori Method in dementia care.
