  • 2020 Dementia Care Certificate Program: Module #2 - Related Dementias: What Aging Service Providers Need to Know

    Purpose

    We know that a large majority of individuals with a dementia diagnosis have Alzheimer’s Disease. However, there are other causes of dementia. With the increased ability of the medical community to more specifically complete a differential diagnosis, care professionals are seeing more and more clients with a diagnosis of Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and Lewy Body Dementia (LBD). These dementia disorders affect the brain differently from each other and differently than Alzheimer’s disease. This session will provide important and timely information about FTD and LBD to help you understand how they may affect your clients and impact the services you provide.

    Learning Objectives

    including the causes and stages of each type. • Become familiar with issues people with FTD and LBD may experience that can impact the service your organization provides to people with dementia. • Identify key local and national resources that will help you and your staff improve their work with people who have different types of dementia.
