Among older patients, who is most at risk for developing dementia? How can a team of caregivers at a nursing home best assess dementia, and what are some of the causes of this condition? How can activity programs help to decrease the cognitive decline of residents at long-term care facilities? Host Dr. Eric Tangalos discusses these and other questions about dementia with Dr. Alva Baker, faculty member of the division of geriatric psychiatry and neuropsychiatry at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
