Program Description

An estimated 5.2 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease.  The quality of life for persons with Alzheimer’s disease is directly related to the relationship they have with their direct care providers.  In order to provide quality care, direct care providers must be trained in dementia care.  This training will help trainers and educators to develop effective dementia care training programs for their direct care providers and family caregivers.  Participants in the training will learn creative ways to teach dementia care concepts as well as innovative strategies for incorporating training into everyday work.  Participants will receive a training manual with presentations and interchangeable learning activities for implementation within their training programs.
