Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias in Individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities: What the Caregiver Needs to Know
Kathryn Service, RN, MS, FNP-BC, CDDN
Many I/DD individuals are eligible for age 60+ Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS). This half-day training for HCBS Nurses, Caregivers and others (of non-DDS service providers) will cover the sometimes unique presentation of ADRD in individuals with I/DD and the challenges for caregivers. This training may assist in the development of better LTSS plans for adults with I/DD who are eligible for age 60+ LTSS.
For your convenience, two sessions are being offered, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
Certificates of Contact Hours will be provided to Nurses
