Let us re-visit the case conference in the chapter CONNECT (Professions and Contributions, Outline of Professions). A 59-year old maths teacher had been diagnosed with early-stage dementia in Alzheimer’s disease featuring significant language problems. He lives at home with his wife and two children. Noticing his increasing symptoms, he became depressed and irritable. According to his individual treatment plan he was put on an antidementia drug, started regular Nordic walking, visits a day-care centre providing occupational therapy several days a week, and participates in a psychological depression group therapy. In addition, he receives communication training provided by a speech and language therapist.
