On today’s episode, host Lisa Skinner talks about some of the ways to deal with dementia behaviors including some of the do’s and don’ts that she cites from an article she shares with her audience.
Because mid-to-late stage Alzheimer’s disease and dementia patients often exhibit challenging behaviors, understanding and learning which strategies are most effective is key. For example, if someone with dementia says to you, “I don’t want to take a shower,” Lisa shares what response(s) work best and what response(s) don’t work well at all.
In her What’s News segment, Lisa shares some exciting news and an update on the drug Iecanemab for use as a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease.
