The A’s of Dementia
This presentation takes a detailed look at the A’s of Dementia — from anxiety, anger, aggression, apathy to amnesia, aphasia, agnosia and apraxia – in a manner that allows caregivers to connect how each “A” is a result of specific damage in the brain’s lobes. Understanding the link between the behaviors of each “A” provides a method for professionals and family caregivers to track the progression of a person’s dementia and provide useful information to medical professionals.
