Dementia 8-hour Specialty Training

Thursday December 14th — Virtual Dementia Specialty Training from 9:00am-5:00pm


Dementia – In the US, it is estimated that over 7 million people over the age of 65 have a form of Dementia. Learning about dementia allows you to create a deeper level of compassion and understand how to best meet the needs of your residents. During this training you will not only learn about the different types of dementia, but more importantly, how to best approach residents. As these diseases progress your approach needs to change too. We will address topics like hallucinations/delusions, trauma, visual and physical changes as well as more challenging topics like sexuality and negative behaviors.

This class satisfies the DSHS requirement for 8 hours of Dementia Specialty Training.
