The Caregiver Training Program is designed for individuals with dementia—and their family, or caregiver—to promote safety, improve their ability to function, and enhance overall quality of life. Our occupational therapists work with healthcare providers, social workers, and caregivers for optimal benefits and outcomes.
Our treatment approach includes:
- Caregiver support and education
- Adapting the environment
- Equipment recommendations
- Alternative techniques for the patient and caregivers
- Cueing strategies
- Diagnosis education
A provider referral for physical therapy or occupational therapy is required. The referral needs to include the diagnosis and specify Caregiver Training Program with PT/OT services. The referral can be faxed to Rehabilitation Services at (603) 330-8949.
