I liked the various references to research conducted. It outlined clearly what to consider including in therapy sessions.
Review by: Member on June 20, 2014
The information was presented in a manner that stayed on course with the stated objectives and provided information that makes me more interested in working with the geriatric population. Dementia is so debilitating to an individual and their family/caregivers. The information in this session certainly provides the SLP with a positive tool that promotes hope for those individuals who face cognitive decline.

I work with the elderly population as a fitness instructor as well and felt that although as an SLP I don't directly work with the elderly, when I do wear my other 'hat', I am able to use similar techniques and the changes I see in that population are very encouraging and rewarding.
