The Fountainview Center hosted a two-hour ethics CEU on the Ethics of Dementia Care on February 28, 2013. We had a full house with almost 60 social workers, case managers, and licensed professional counselors.
Moira Keller, LCSW from Piedmont Hospital's Sixty Plus, presented on the Ethics of Dementia Care. She discussed the history of dementia and bioethics. She compared the Fairhill Guidelines with the Alzheimer's Associations Ethical Guidelines. Additionally, she outlined possible ethical dilemmas that social workers, case managers, family, and other caregivers may face at different stages within the dementia process. She also discussed ethical lying and when this was appropriate to use in a practice setting.
A big thank you to the event's sponsors: The Fountaiview Center, Hurley Elder Care Law, Assisted Living Locators, Sunrise Senior Living, LivHOME, and Crossroads Hospice.
