Individuals with dementia interact with a variety of professionals including nursing staff, psychologists, counsellors, social workers, OTs, PTs, SLPs, home health aides, adult day centre staff, and first responders.
But whatever your profession, proper skills and understanding of the disease is needed to work with this population. Without the appropriate training, safety risks grow and opportunities to improve care and quality of life are missed.
This essential training program will provide you with the tools, strategies, and practices you need to best serve patients facing Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
In just one day you’ll learn how you can better assess for and differentiate between different types of dementias, overcome the communication issues that can obstruct quality care, work more collaboratively with family and caregivers, maximize daily functioning, and safely and effectively intervene when difficult behaviours arise.
Best of all, upon completion of this training, you'll be eligible to become a Certified Dementia Care Specialist (CDCS) through Evergreen Certifications, letting colleagues, employers, and caregivers know that you've invested the extra time and effort necessary to understand the complexities of the disease, build essential skills, and employ safe and effective best practices to provide quality care (visit www.evergreencertifications.com/cdcs for details).
Purchase today! You can’t afford to miss out on this chance to get the skills, tactics, and knowledge you need to provide the best care possible for these patients!
