Alzheimer's Recovery Approach

Decent Essays
Kayla and I focused on the recovery-oriented approach to progressive neurocognitive disorders, specifically Alzheimer’s disease. Before beginning this presentation I knew a decent amount about Alzheimer’s disease since my grandmother past away from it and because I’ve also learned about it in a dementia course I took in second year. However, I had never heard of the recovery-oriented approach or any interventions in general for Alzheimer’s disease. This was interesting to learn about because when I first thought of the recovery model I assumed it meant cure, which would not be appropriate for someone with Alzheimer’s disease. I have learned that the recovery approach is more about the process or journey rather then the destination or cure.
