An 8 hour Seminar geared toward any healthcare worker who may interact with seniors with a diagnosis of dementia. Did you know that almost half of the residents in senior living care facilities have a diagnosis of dementia? We discuss, in depth, many aspects of Alzheimer's & Dementia, allowing opportunities to share experiences and learn from each other through discussion and some practice sessions. Some of the topics covered includes Communication, Behaviors, Pain Management, Personal Care, Intimacy, Activities (including Therapy), Caregiver Stress and End of Life. This follows the upcoming trend of states wanting staff to be trained to appropriately interact with the aging & dementia populations. After this seminar, you may be able to put in an application to become a Certified Dementia Practitioner. The CDP certification is not a profession rather it is a compliment to the professional credentials and training you already have obtained in your chosen profession and your choice to work with the geriatric profession.
