The Alzheimer Disease Afflicted: Understanding the Disease and the Resident Instructors Guide and Teaching Materials.
The learning modules contained in this document are designed to permit instructors in many settings to deliver high quality training to caregivers of Alzheimers' disease patients. Instructors can prepare by reviewing the Instructor's Guide which outlines the behavioral objectives each learner will be expected to achieve to complete the module as proposed. In this manual, the instructor is given the primary learning resources to be used in preparation for teaching. There are details of specific interventions which the caregiver would use in the administration of care to the resident. Narrative material is provided as a supplement to journal articles, books, and other primary learning materials. Definitive information which could be presented in a lecture format and would assure that all of the learner objectives would be covered in the lecture is included. An exercise is provided with each module which the learner may complete alone or in a group with other participants. Specific topics covered include defining Alzheimer's disease, communications, care strategies, family burdens, sensory loss, and dying and bereavement. (Author/ABL)
