Managing Challenging Behaviors of Older Adults with Dementia

As documented by organizations such as the Alzheimer's Association and by the most recent scholarly research in the biomedical and social service fields, caregivers working with older adults with dementia often report that their biggest obstacles are related to managing the challenging behaviors that individuals with dementia often exhibit. These behaviors, which include aggression, hallucinations, and wandering, interfere with caregivers ability to provide good care. They also increase the level of stress that professional and informal caregivers experience in helping people living with dementia. The main goal of this course, which is designed for human service professionals, is to provide essential information about the most common challenging behaviors that caregivers face. As you will learn in this training, researchers have developed different models to explain why challenging behaviors occur, along with how to manage these behaviors. After looking at both pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to managing these behaviors, you will learn some practical techniques for dealing with challenging behaviors in your work with older adults and their caregivers. The course uses interactive exercises and detailed case vignettes to teach you how to recognize common challenging behaviors in older adults with dementia, as well as how to determine the most effective strategies for managing different behaviors.
