A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia offers unique challenges in the home health care setting. Dementia caregiving is a world where the ‘normal’ rules don’t apply, and professional caregivers need continuing education and guidance to learn how to support, motivate, and keep people with dementia safe. Join the experts from C&V Senior Care for this 4-part series on Alzheimer’s and other dementias.
