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.
