  • I really like this ppt and would like to be able to print this one and the other one you did; Is there a way I can do that? I am a person who has to have a hard copy in order to read; I have been asked to present info about communicating with the Alzheimer resident; how can I access the case studies you mentioned ?

  • This is very good material on Dementia. I am an LPN and work in a LTC facility. They have dementia pts along with the other pts. Some of the staff believe in trying to bring pt back to reality, for example if their husband had passed away, the other nurses believe in telling her (when she is looking for her husband and is tearful) that her husband has passed away. I don't know how to help this pt.
