Description

Social Workers & Nurses - Earn 1 HOUR FREE CEU Credit!

Older adults often face mounting physical and emotional challenges brought on by the aging process that can result in challenging geriatric behaviors. Case managers, social workers, and nurses who regularly interact with this population experience these behaviors first-hand when aggression, agitation, refusal of food or water, wandering, and inappropriate sexual advances brought on by depression, anxiety, and dementia culminate in potentially damaging interactions and encounters. Being equipped with new tools and approaches to handle these behaviors can make all the difference for those serving seniors.

In this interactive and practical session, participants will learn how to:

  • Determine the best interventions for specific behaviors

  • Identify differences between delirium, dementia & depression in seniors

  • Work with family caregivers to empower them with the best information
