SLEEP, SWALLOWING, SKIN AND SCAROPENIA IN DEMENTIA CARE

All About Dementia is offering a brand new course on the management of some common physical issues associated with ageing and dementia that can cause unnecessary difficulties and anxiety. We will look at the following issues causes, consequences, prevention and management.

THE COURSE COVERS

  •  Swallowing difficulties – as dementia progresses the swallow reflex is diminished, we look at various interventions to help
  • Sleep Issues- a symptom of dementia is a clinical level sleep disorder; we will discuss how we should accommodate this issue
  • Skin Care in Dementia – prevention of skin breakdown requires a plan of attack
  • Scaropenia or Muscle Wastage – affects 1 in 3 elderly; lack of mobility can cause muscle wastage; we look at the consequences and strategies of dealing with this problem. Pain management is key
