Education Kit: Dementia Care Provision: Reducing Risk

Full training course with license.

This Education Kit will increase staff awareness on how much their approach and interactions impact people living with dementia. It will help them understand that dementia is not a choice, but a condition that affects a person’s ability to function “normally.” As care partners, it is possible to adapt what we do to improve care interactions and outcomes. The practical and well-designed techniques demonstrated in these videos can be used by any staff person, volunteer, or family member.

We hope that the resources in this Education Kit will be a practical starting point in helping staff become more aware that they can make a significant difference with some simple changes to the way they have traditionally done things. Please check back with us for additional products and services to meet your needs as you grow your dementia care skills!
