PROGRAM DETAILS

While the elderly are, in many respects, no different than their younger counterparts, there are dynamics in the aging process in Western culture that create subtle issues that are easily overlooked. Frequently, elderly patients are just written off as old and/or senile because neither caregiver nor elder recognize the deeper causes of the problems. Figuring out the root of aging patients´ odd behavior and the reasons they act the way they do is a crucial factor in changing the environment within nursing homes, assisted living facilities and even hospital and home-care settings. Recognition of these issues and properly addressing them improves the efficacy of treatment.

In this one-day seminar, Dr. Nygard will discuss common issues and possible psychiatric syndromes in the elderly patient. He will stress how important it is to differentiate between stress, anxiety and pure feelings of loss. Cognitive rehabilitation for dementia will be covered as well as alternative models for long-term care, such as the Eden Alternative and Green Houses. Participants will leave this seminar with the knowledge they need to immediately incorporate better treatment and understanding of their elderly patients.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Discuss the prevalence of psychiatric disorders in the elderly

  • Identify how to recognize causes of depression and anxiety in aging patients and give them tools for making a life worth living

  • Recognize elderly patients´ sense of multiple losses and assist them in restructuring their world

  • Explore specific issues for hospital, hospice and long-term care environments

  •  
  • Discuss the prevalence of psychiatric disorders in the elderly

  • Outline the subtle signs of depression and how it differs from dementia

  • Differentiate general anxiety from agitation and dealing with loss

  • Recognize the elderly patient´s sense of loss by acknowledging a preoccupation with the past

  • Examine the patient´s willingness for death and how the loss of meaning and opportunities can lead to depression

  • Outline several alternative models for elder care and how they can positively affect elderly patients
