New Resource On Dementia Care

Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia are among the most
significant issues facing the elderly and their loved ones. Because people with
dementia often lose the ability to communicate over time, they are especially
vulnerable and need special care. To help improve care and the public’s
understanding of dementia care standards, the Long Term Care Community
Coalition (LTCCC) has developed a new brochure designed especially for families
and individuals affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. This
resource, Get the Facts
about Antipsychotic Drugs and Dementia Care
, developed with support
from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, will help people
understand important issues surrounding the use of antipsychotic medications in
people with dementia, know what kinds of questions to ask and where to go for
further help and information.
