Presented by Chris Petrik, RN, BS, Director of Education, Elderwerks Educational Services

Some people live with anxiety prior to their diagnosis of dementia while others experience anxiety after their diagnosis. Either way, dementia and anxiety can coexist. This combination can further impact their behavior and how they interact with caregivers or other residents. During this presentation Chris will discuss how to identify anxiety, impacts of dementia and/or anxiety, and treatment options available. She will also provide helpful strategies for healthcare providers who work with residents who have dementia and anxiety.
