Fully virtual program is a game changer for people living with dementia

An innovative, Baycrest-developed dementia care program can reduce the need for hospital admissions by 60%, according to a study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease today. The program, called the Virtual Behavioural Medicine (VBM) program, allows clinicians to assess and manage patients with severe neuropsychiatric symptoms of dementia while the patients remain in their homes. VBM also supports acute care hospitals in the management of individuals with severe neuropsychiatric symptoms of dementia.
