Event Details

Relationships: Moving Away from Drugs to Comfort-Focused Dementia Care


This symposium is designed to teach non-pharmacologic interventions for the treatment of poeple with dementia and why such options are often superior to psychotropic drugs.

The use of psychotropics for people with dementia has come under increased scrutiny from policymakers and the long-term care industry. The symposium sessions will review the recent efforts to end the misuse of psychotropic drugs in dementia care but more importantly, explain a different form of care based on comfort, engagement, and human relationships. Particular attention will be paid to initiating and sustaining comfort focused care in long term care facilities.
