Alzheimer’s Disease: Beyond Signs and Symptoms Training

About this Course

This training describes the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, as well as risk factors and medication used to delay cognitive decline and neuropsychiatric symptoms. We then explore the world of a caregiver and how they are affected by the disease both emotionally and financially. To gain a deeper understanding of the individual living with Alzheimer’s disease, this training also explores distressing behaviors that can be caused by an unmet need, and how to build a therapeutic relationship that is based on respect, empathy, and maintaining one’s dignity.

    1. Define and describe the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.

    3. Describe the financial and emotional impact on a caregiver.
