Overcoming Mental ImpairmentStreaming Video - 2006
This program provides useful guidelines and advice to caregivers assisting people with mental impairments. The two major classifications of impairment are closely examined: dementia, or degenerative diseases of the brain such as Alzheimer's, and mental disorders due to congenital conditions, such as Down syndrome. Techniques on how to communicate with and assist elderly people are demonstrated. Instructive interviews with spouses and caregivers of elderly patients and with parents of children with mental disabilities round out this program.
