NEW! Curriculum for High School and College Students: When the Brain Fails to Do Its Work.
Because over 70% of caregiving of persons with dementia is provided by family members, teenagers are directly affected by the disease. Due to the increase in our aging population, the incidence of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias is forecasted to grow with an increasing need for professionals in related fields. When the Brain Fails to Do Its Work includes: curriculum modules, power point slides, active website links and a teacher's guide. Modules include: Medical Overview, Impact on Caregivers, Resources, and Careers Working with Older Adults.
