Description
Unless risk can be reduced, the number of people with dementia will exceed 13 million in the U.S. and 107 million worldwide by 2050. Psychologists have identified the discrete patterns of cognitive, behavioral, and functional performance that distinguish normal cognitive aging from the abnormal preclinical to dementia continuum. The intermediate workshop describes state-of-the-art behavioral programs operating in the U.S. and Canada to promote brain health and limit functional decline in aging and mild cognitive impairment.
Learning Objectives
1. Describe recent diagnostic nomenclature in cognitive aging and dementia.
2. Discuss the current state of knowledge about the impact of behavioral interventions intended to prevent or delay dementia.
3. Describe promising behavioral interventions to help maintain function in people with mild cognitive impairment.
4. Utilize behavioral interventions with caregivers of individuals with memory loss.
