Congratulations! You have completed the content in Session 1, covering Dementia Overview and Medication Overview. Now let's apply what you have learned.

 

  • What stage of dementia is your loved one currently experiencing?
  • Does the symptoms he/she is currently experiencing correlate with what you've learned in this session? You will learn more about how to deal with common symptoms or problem behaviors in a later session!
  • It's important to always discuss new prescriptions with your loved one's healthcare provider and pharmacist to avoid medication reactions, which unfortunately are common in the elderly population. Have you started a medication list for your loved one with dementia? Do you keep it on hand? You will learn more about medication safety in a later session!
  • Remember, there is no cure for dementia, but certain medications can help treat symptoms and may even slow the progression of dementia. What medications is your loved one taking for dementia? This is important to remember!
