Patients Calling the Shots: Dementia-Friendly Care

This expert panel will discuss an innovative model for providing person-centered dementia care and using technology to facilitate diagnosis and treatment. What if the wants/needs of people experiencing cognitive changes were the primary drivers of how a clinic cares for its patients? What if detection and treatment of cognitive difficulties could happen within the comfort of the patient’s own home? We developed a unique method to address the needs of people with dementia and their care partners, which includes incorporating their feedback into daily operations. Computerized assessment and telehealth platforms allow patients to be assessed and treated at home. Dive in with us as we discuss the future of dementia care at the Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences Comprehensive Memory Center.
