Working with Veterans with Dementia and PTSD

Veterans who had been in combat or otherwise experienced trauma during their service may have been able to function day to day without major symptoms of PTSD… until they experienced dementia as older adults. These veterans would not have sought treatment for PTSD. However, with the loss of connection to present day reality orientation, and possible beliefs that they are back in time, old traumas could be triggered, regardless of whether the veterans ever recognized, experienced or treated PTSD when they returned home. This program offers useful perspectives and strategies to current day caregivers of older veterans with dementia.  

Join us to

  1. Describe the experience of older veterans with PTSD symptoms
  2. Analyze ways in which old traumas could be triggered for veterans living with dementia
  3. Detail care strategies for current day caregivers of older veterans living with dementia

NOTE: meets NASW – CT’s Veterans Services licensure requirement
