About Professional Training

The Alzheimer's Association is committed to helping professionals improve their knowledge and skills, build stronger teams and deliver better care to people with dementia and their families. Our training and education programs are geared to professionals working in both community-based and residential care settings.

Our programs and meetings have been attended by activity professionals, administrators, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, social workers and staff trainers. Typically, we will offer CEUs during our fall and spring caregiver seminars and spring symposium.  Please check our education calendar for other CEU opportunities.

Foundations of Dementia Care - classroom training

This classroom training program will provide the professional caregiver with education focused on appropriate, person-centered care of those with dementia.

Currently, there are no upcoming scheduled sessions.  Contact Shelly Young  for additional information, including information on CEU availability or scheduling training at your facility. 


Seminars and Conferences

The North Central Texas Chapter presents five major education programs each year, four of which are caregiver seminars.

  • The Alzheimer's Association hosts the Alzheimer's Association Caregiver Seminar in Fort Worth and Waco in the fall and in Abilene and Wichita Falls in the spring.  Geared toward professional health care providers as well as family caregivers, the Caregiver Seminars offer presentations by knowledgeable and engaging professionals in the field of dementia care and always receive glowing reviews from attendees.  
  • In addition, each spring the Alzheimer's Association Spring Symposium is held in Fort Worth (usually the last Thursday of March) at which professionals may earn continuing education credits in several disciplines. For more information, please check the education calendar or contact the chapter at 1.800.272.3900.
