Fundamentals of Developmental Disabilities and Dementia

  • 3600 Camelot Drive Southeast Grand Rapids, MI, 49546 United States (map)

Course Description:

This course is designed to educate professional service providers who provide care to people with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) or other dementia and/or their family members and care partners. Driving is deeply connected to our independence, our enjoyment of life, and our identity as productive, responsible members of society. It is hard to sit still when someone questions our driving ability. As dementia progresses, driving can become impaired, and tough conversations and decisions must happen. Learn the common warning signs of driving impairment, what a professional’s obligations to the person with dementia and the community to report impaired driving is, how to help persons with dementia transition from driver to passenger and common family dynamics issues.
