Alzheimer’s Disease

Course Summary

No one knows what causes Alzheimer’s disease but certain factors are suspected, such as a person’s genetics, lifestyle, or environment. Health clinicians must be able to distinguish between Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and the normal aging process. Currently, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease but once it is diagnosed, there are treatment options for the patient. A health clinician will need to incorporate medication, behavioral, and communication strategies available for Alzheimer’s patients.
