Transforming quality dementia care
High quality training drives the transformation of quality care. Research, as highlighted in the Alzheimer’s Association Dementia Care Practice Recommendations shows that high-quality dementia care training can lead to an improvement in communication between caregivers and individuals living with dementia, a reduction in dementia-related behaviors and an increase in job satisfaction for staff.
The Alzheimer’s Association curriculum review will offer providers the opportunity to remain on the leading edge of person-centered care by measuring current training against five topic areas of the Dementia Care Practice Recommendations, the benchmark for quality care across the disease spectrum.
Once an organization’s curricula is recognized, staff from that care provider are eligible to become certified in essentiALZ, an exam that demonstrates knowledge of quality care dementia practices.
