THE FOCUS of Trahan Behavioral Services is to keep older adults with dementia
independent for as long as possible. Dr. Trahan’s goal is to teach older adults
and their caregivers the skills necessary to improve their quality of life. TBS seeks to increase appropriate behaviors and manage challenging behaviors with individualized non-pharmacological interventions.
THE APPROACH that Dr. Trahan uses is derived from applied behavior analysis.
She is a skilled therapist who customizes behavioral programs to each individual’s
skills, needs, interests, and setting. Treatment plans are customized to the family’s
goals of care and involve ongoing support as adjustments are needed throughout
the progression of dementia.
