Lecture – Dementia: The Struggle is Real (Virtual)
"DEATH CREATIONS: Embracing Death for a Fuller Life" 2021 Virtual Conference Series
"Dementia: The Struggle is Real"
80% of people with dementia have behavioral challenges, including agitation, during their disease progression. Current management of these behaviors with prescription drugs do not always work and the lack of clinical studies can be frustrating. In the context of Casa de la Luz Hospice's innovative agitation program, Dr. Rebecca Powell and Piper Frithsen will share practical, non-pharmacological approaches to treating dementia behaviors and their underlying causes like boredom, restlessness and sensory overload.
