Summary:

Symptoms of dementia are devastating both to the individual diagnosed with the condition and those who are involved in the individual’s life. Dementia negatively impacts daily activities, communication, cognition and interpersonal relationships. Additionally, dementia and conditions associated with it have a significant time and financial impact on caregivers and represent a major utilization of healthcare dollars and resources. Between 2005 and 2009, the worldwide cost of dementia increased by 34%. The goal of this program is to teach PTs how to recognize symptoms of differential diagnoses, understand the types of dementias, and understand the significance of using the global scales for staging the severity of dementia. 

Objectives:
