Don’t Drug Grandma: Relieving Pain and Agitation Without Sedation

SPEAKER: ELIZABETH LANDSVERK MD

Dementia is a challenging disease. Agitation is even more confusing.

  • How do we know when to treat pain?
  • How do we treat pain?
  • Is Ativan OK? Is Motrin OK?
  • How do we stop the agitation?
  • What do we do if music does not work?

I don’t want my loved one sedated. What to do?

Dr Landsverk presents a TED Talk rehearsal on medications in elders; discussion to follow.
