This course will provide an overview of Alzheimer’s disease and its medical management, practical information on optimal interactions with individuals who have Alzheimer’s disease, research findings related to motor learning in this population, existing evidence on rehabilitation with individuals with dementia, and strategies to facilitate successful outcomes.
