Training for Direct Care Staff and Professionals
We provide education and training for people working in the health and long-term care field. In addition to the curriculum offered by the Alzheimer's Learning Institute, we have an annual education conference that appeals to dementia care leaders, medical and clinical workers and health care administrators, as well as direct care staff.
Trainings are delivered by request by individual facilities or corporations. The Chapter also hosts mini-workshops for direct care providers such as certified nursing assistants, activities staff and professionals. Self-study and web-based modules are also available for purchase. Please see offerings listed below and our Calendar of Events.
