An individual with dementia experiences mental decline that affects core mental abilities including language, visual spatial function, recent memory and executive function. This decline presents significant challenges for the professional caregivers providing care in the home.  After providing an overview of dementia and introducing the importance of Habilitation Therapy the presenters will demonstrate how to navigate website resources to help empower the professional to implement best care practices.  Strategies for interfacing with family caregivers and ways to access safety during a home visit will be explored. In addition, how to access Medicare benefits and current research updates will be provided.
