Home Health and Cognitive Impairment
Updated: Feb 5, 2022
In this podcast, Shawn discusses ways to improve the lives of those with cognitive impairment. Since the pandemic started, we've seen a rapid decline with people that have cognitive impairment, due to isolation, decreased social interaction, decreased activity levels. Daily activity improves strength and balance of those with cognitive impairments, even though they might not remember you were there, as well as improvements in appetite, digestion and sleep, and reduced symptoms of sundowners syndrome. Home Health can help focus on what they can do daily, improving quality of life.
