Person-Centered Dementia Care: A Habilitation Therapy Training Curriculum

Includes the Alzheimer’s Association’s New Dementia Care Practice Recommendations and the opportunity to purchase Alzheimer’s Association essentiALZ® certification for direct care staff.

Train-the-Trainer Program

Our new curriculum is a train-the-trainer model created to prepare attendees, already familiar with Alzheimer’s and dementia care, to train direct care staff in a wide range of residential and community based care settings. The 7-hour in-person training teaches attendees how to deliver the 13-hour curriculum based on the person-centered model of Habilitation therapy. 

The new 7-hour in-person training is a train-the-trainer model and includes the nationally recognized peer-reviewed, evidence-based person-centered care approach from the Alzheimer’s Association Dementia Care Practice Recommendations. Attendees receive 13 hours of curriculum based on the person-centered care model of Habilitation Therapy.  Materials include PowerPoint, interactive learning exercises and lecture. CEUs are provided.


If you attended our previous train-the-trainer program, you may be eligible to purchase our webinar training in lieu of attending the training in person. The cost of the webinar training is $350 ($200 non-profit rate) and includes a description of the curriculum changes and a complimentary training manual. You must meet the following criteria to be eligible to purchase the webinar:
