Is your staff prepared to care for people with dementia? More than half of long-term care residents have dementia.
The Alzheimer's Association is committed to helping professionals improve their knowledge and skills, build stronger teams and deliver better care to people with dementia and their families. Our training and education programs are geared to professionals working in both community-based and residential care settings.
Our programs and meetings have been attended by activity professionals, administrators, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, social workers and staff trainers.
We can help you deliver quality dementia care. The Alzheimer’s Association dementia care training program for residential communities will give your direct care staff the specialized knowledge and skills to be more productive and deliver a higher quality of dementia care.
Our highly interactive training program features:
• Multimedia and hands-on training
• Care strategies for all stages of dementia
