In the nursing home setting, an approximate 60% of all nursing home residents are dealing with some type of dementia. This makes positioning very difficult as the therapist does not get accurate feedback that would back up equipment choices in regard to choosing the appropriate cushion, back support and accessories to meet the individualized need of every resident. Learn about what functional losses can be expected with the different areas of the brain damaged with dementia and learn some seating and positioning techniques to ensure successful seating interventions with residents diagnosed with dementia.
This course is intended for physical and occupational therapists and aides.
