Enhancing Dementia Care: A Holistic Approach for Allied Healthcare Professionals

Description

Join us for a dynamic webinar designed to address the critical practice gap in dementia care within the allied healthcare community. As the incidence of dementia rises, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists face the challenge of delivering comprehensive and culturally
responsive care. Our webinar delves into understanding the prevalence and social determinants of dementia, offering practical strategies for person-centered assessments and culturally sensitive interventions. By bridging interdisciplinary knowledge gaps, attendees will gain valuable insights into empowering dementia care partners and maximizing therapy outcomes. Whether you’re a seasoned clinician or a student entering the field, this webinar promises to enrich your practice and enhance your ability to make a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals living with dementia. Join us to revolutionize your approach to dementia care.
