Our Dementia Care Training for Professional Caregivers specifically aims to empower direct care workers from a variety of settings to provide the highest quality of care to persons with dementia.  The training is currently offered in English and Spanish.

This training meets for a full day, once a week for six weeks, at the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter.  Trainees who complete the program receive a certificate of attendance at a graduation ceremony which occurs during week seven.
Topics include:

  • Understanding the disease process
  • Enhancing communication
  • Creating meaningful activities
  • Managing challenging behaviors
  • Palliative care
  • Person-centered care
  • Home safety
  • Family interactions
  • Cultural awareness
  • Elder abuse
  • Self-care

This nationally-recognized training has made a significant difference in the lives of persons with dementia, their family members, and those who are paid to care for them.
