PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Your Evidence-Based Guide to Maintaining Functional Independence
Dementia is one of the leading causes of death among older Americans – its prevalence doubling every 5 years after age 65, afflicting nearly 30% of adults by their 85th birthday. Often undiagnosed or undertreated, dementia takes its toll on mobility, speech, and memory; silently stealing independence as its victims withdraw from complex activities.

Discover new, evidence-based techniques in one day that can stop functional degeneration and help your patients achieve functional gains faster than you ever imagined. Join Dr. Connie Lambert as she guides you step-by-step through the process and pitfalls of determining the source and cause of dementia – both critical elements of planning the treatment program. Learn to confidently identify the type of dementia present, recognize the functional barriers it causes, and easily discern temporary dementia symptoms from permanent ones. Explore effective approaches to each barrier and discover how to kick-start progress by setting finite, functional goals and combining new techniques to meet them. Last but not least, review the best documentation practices to adapt to recent Medicare changes and ensure maximum reimbursement. Whether you're aiming to reach higher Resource Utilization Group (RUG) levels in a skilled nursing facility or have your sights set on increasing participation in Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) at home, Functional Freedom Despite Dementia will arm you with all the tools you need to help your patients reclaim their independence ASAP.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• Identify the type of dementia the patient is experiencing and steps to manage or reduce the aspects that interfere with treatment
• Recognize functional barriers with dementia patients and set finite goals
• Provide skilled, functional treatment and documentation for patients previously thought to be inappropriate for skilled treatment
• Utilize the procedural memory tract in treatment plans to increase function
• Detect behavioral issues interfering with treatment and determine how to plan functional treatment to manage and eliminate behaviors
• Collaborate with facility administrators, minimum data set (MDS) nurses, and other personnel to advance treatment goals
• Document treatment in functional terms


THE PRESENTER'S BIO

CONNIE LAMBERT, PT, CCM, PhD, is a well-known specialist in the field of geriatric rehabilitation and dementia care. She graduated from Ohio State University in 1984 with a degree in physical therapy, specializing in neurologic disorders, and soon noticed the near absence of rehabilitative efforts for individuals with dementia in the long-term care setting. She returned to graduate school and earned her doctorate degree in research psychology, focusing on the brain chemistry and function of aging adults with dementing disorder. Since then, she has spent her career working with patients, therapists, physicians, families, and facilities.

Dr. Lambert has developed state-of-the-art treatment protocols for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and behavioral dysfunction, trained countless professionals, and lectured throughout the country. She believes every situation is unique and every solution is one of a kind. Most importantly, Dr. Lambert teaches therapists and other professionals how to deliver effective treatment to improve function in individuals with dementia.
