presented by Teepa Snow

Video Runtime: 40 Minutes; Learning Assessment Runtime: 31 Minutes

For therapists that provide screenings and possible diagnoses, it can be difficult to determine the major characteristics of each form of dementia separately. Given that a correct diagnosis is extremely important to the quality of life and care for people living with dementia, this course will provide deeper information about Alzheimer’s, Vascular, and Lewy Body by discussing the expected changes and symptoms, as well as providing demonstrations to show varying characteristics. . Finally, the session will provide alternative screening techniques, knowledge about the different dementias, and support for those providing treatment as well as care to be better advocates and partners for people living with each type.

This is part one of a three part series covering Dementias. Be sure to watch:
Part Two: Differentiating Dementias: Frontal, Temporal and More
Part Three: Key Indicators of Primary Dementias and How They Fit Together

    Interventions for Neurological Diagnoses: Balance
    presented by Kay Wing

    Older adults with neurological deficits have a greater risk of falling due to balance-related issues. This can lead to fear of falling, which in turn may decrease the patient’s mobility and further increase the risk of falling. This decreased participation and physical activity negatively impacts the patient’s quality of life. Join Dr. Wing as she presents an innovative progression of interventions from simple to complex balance activities to challenge and facilitate balance for function in a variety of environments.

    Specific Orthoses for Neurological Conditions
    presented by Deborah A. Schwartz

    Orthoses for immobilization can also be applied to specific populations for a variety of goals beyond support and protection. Therapists may be required to apply orthoses to the upper extremity presenting with abnormal or increased muscle tone as seen in patients with neurological conditions such as post brain trauma or stroke. Increased muscle tone can lead to soft tissue contractures, muscle and tendon shortening and joint deformities. In this course, orthoses designed to maintain muscle and soft tissue length and prevent joint contractures are described. Learn more
