Alzheimer's Assessment: Identifying Impairments and Remaining Abilities
 

Health professionals know that understanding a person's abilities is critical to providing quality care, especially for progressive illnesses that affect brain function such as Alzheimer's disease. A formal cogitive assessment is important to the evaluation process of every patient because it gives caregivers information about the person's impairments and abilities that can't be obtained from a normal conversation.

In this program, nationally recognized Alzheimer's expert Peter V. Rabins, MD, MPH uses clinically relevant items from several standard protocols to assess the cognitive and memory decline in five individuals with Alzheimer's disease. While their impairments range from mild to severe, it may surprise you what they can still do.

This valuable program illustrates a variety of assessment techniques important for the entire health care team and all students training to work with the elderly.
