The complexities of an elderly patient with moderate dementia and excessive alcohol consumption in an assisted living care facility, with his wife who also has dementia and diabetes, will be presented by various healthcare providers. How do healthcare professionals deal with the ramifications of behavior problems related to obligations and rights of the patients, healthcare providers, assisted living facility and power of attorney?

Target Audience

This program is designed to be beneficial for internists, family practitioners, geriatricians, geriatric psychiatrists, pharmacists, nurses, nursing home administrators, social workers and other health care professionals who provide care to older adults.

 

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants should be able to:

• Determine whether a person with dementia has capacity or right to deny necessary basic and medical care for himself and a demented spouse.

• List ethical, legal, safe, viable approaches to cases of self-neglect and abuse that takes place in personal care settings.

• Explore the legal and ethical obligations of the nurse, personal care administration and provider in the case and how to balance this with individual’s rights to self-determination and how this varies when the individual is living with dementia.
