About this course
The ageing brain affects not only those who are ageing, but their children, grandchildren, carers and others who may seek the help of a therapist. Understanding what is going on the brain assists in understanding the needs and wants of the client when making therapeutic choices. In this course, Richard Hill (Mindscience Institute) examines and discusses: Risk factors and early signs; Alzheimer's disease; Stroke; Senility; Late life vascular depression. Understanding these aspects of change in the brain can help in your assistance of the client in day-to-day living or in day-to-day care. The slides (downloadable) are packed with information for your ongoing study and reference.
