Being Clinically Effective & Appropriately Sensitive When Treating Dementia

Welcome to PhysioU’s Mentoring Minutes! Each episode of Mentoring Minutes directly applies a clinical approach with relevant research for effective results.

We are seeing that dementia is more common today due to patients getting older and living longer.  In today’s episode of Mentoring Minutes, Dr. Marshall Lemoine will be discussing how we can best help patients with dementia to improve their quality of life. Watch the video below for ideas on how we can help slow cognitive decline, improve function, and give clinically effective treatment.

The newest Mentoring Minutes get posted on Facebook every Monday.  If you are not on Facebook, you can find most of our videos on YouTube.  See you next week!
