Training Overview Description

The purpose of the Dementia Care Workshop is to build a foundation of knowledge which will enable the learner to integrate new care strategies into their professional practice that will increase the quality of life for people with dementia. The workshop teaches the fundamentals of dementia, as well as practical skills such as communication techniques, activities planning and best practices in de-escalating difficult behaviors. This training is specifically for direct care workers such as certified nursing assistants, workers in assisted living homes, personal care attendants, in-home workers, care coordinators and family caregivers.

This training is co-sponsored by the Alaska Training Cooperative. Continuing Nursing Education: 4 contact hours. Alzheimer's Resource of Alaska is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the Montana Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Credentialing Center's Commission of Accreditation.
