According to Bahar-Fuchs et al. (2019), dementia causes cognitive impairment, compromising the patients’ functional independence. The suggested solution to the dementia problem is implementing cognitive training, an effective treatment for the patients’ cognitive impairment burden to improve their memory, thinking, and attention-taking. Implementing the cognitive training would require strategic collaboration with the patients and healthcare workers in the skilled nursing facility while integrating Kotter’s change model in the proposed solution to achieve successful outcomes.
