Dementia Care For America’s Heroes – Part 3 (Progression)

This DVD equips caregivers to better understand dementia’s timeline, using a 5-level measurement tool that helps caregivers of veterans to understand the progressive changes that may occur with various types of dementia, and how to adapt care for those changing needs.  It provides real strategies for coping with typical challenges from each stage (working with a doctor, making decisions about future plans, driving, taking medications, fostering purposeful activities, eating and swallowing concerns, adjusting to new sleep patterns, and end-of-life care).  Caregivers will learn how to identify the most effective tools for managing the “good days and bad days” of each stage.  Chaptered for easy access to a specific topic.  Presented by award-winning dementia care specialist Heather McKay.
