Best Practices for Providing Person-Centered Care for Individuals with Intellectual / Developmental Disabilities and Dementia – Part 2

Tuesday, December 14 2021 @ 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Part 2 of a 2 part series – attend 1 or both

When individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) are diagnosed with dementia, the person and their caregivers must navigate new territory in a dual diagnosis.  It is vital that everyone involved understand the changes that occur and what current best practices are available to help.

This educational offering provides 1 (one) continuing nursing education contact hour.

Alzheimer’s Resource of Alaska is approved as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by Montana Nurses Association, an accredited approver with distinction by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

Part one (November 16) of this series will discuss the importance of early detection which can lead to early diagnosis and referral for services and supports. An accurate diagnosis provides the opportunity to address signs, delay symptoms, and identify potentially treatable conditions.

Part two (December 14) of this series will present the challenges caregivers experience when caring for individuals with I/DD and dementia. The overall outcome is to provide person-centered care and increase the quality of life for people with I/DD and dementia and their caregivers.

Free to attend! Registration required.
