CEU Program – Ethical Dilemmas in Dementia Care

October 26, 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 7:45 pm


Registration begins at 3:30 pm

Keswick is hosting the next in-person CEU program. Social workers and case managers are welcome to attend. Joanna Frankel, MSW, LCSW-C of Frankel Care will give a presentation on the Ethical Dilemmas In Dementia Care. 

When there is a diagnosis of permanent dementia like Alzheimer’s disease, numerous ethical dilemmas arise. Ethical challenges occur when clinicians are navigating communication and end-of-life with persons with dementia. There are also ethical issues involving privacy and confidentiality when the families of persons with dementia are involved. How do we balance self-determination with commitment to client/primacy of patient? Join us for this interactive ethical discussion on how to best serve persons with dementia and their families.

Learning Objectives:

  • List three ways normal aging is different from permanent dementia
  • Name two types of permanent dementia
  • Identify two common ethical dilemmas in dementia care
  • List two places in their code of ethics/regulations that can be turned to for help in ethical dilemmas in dementia care

Joanna Frankel, MSW, LCSW-C is a graduate of Towson University with a Bachelor’s in both psychology and gerontology. Joanna obtained her MSW from the University of Maryland, School of Social Work with a clinical concentration and a focus on Aging. Joanna has more than 20 years of experience in the long-term care setting and is passionate about supervising social work licensee candidates.
