3. Functional, Reimbursable Goal-Setting Across Clinical Settings
This chapter will describe the various care settings where SLPs may provide treatment for individuals with different dementia syndromes and considerations for goal development. Treatment settings include outpatient clinics, independent/assisted living communities, home health, hospital (inpatient), subacute care (skilled nursing facility), and memory units. Practical strategies for utilizing an interdisciplinary team approach to care, increasing involvement of family members, and getting staff buy-in will be discussed. Goal writing and how to document progress for a neurodegenerative condition will also be discussed, to ensure reimbursement.
