Dementia Capable Care: The Caregivers Survival Guide
(Please click on the section number to be taken to our online registration system.)

Being the caregiver of a loved one with memory loss or dementia can be rewarding but demanding work, and more than 40 million adult children find themselves experiencing the double duty of caring for their elders as they try to carry on a life of their own. Dementia Capable Care is a training and certification course for both professional and family caregivers to increase the understanding of dementia and improve communication and care for persons with dementia. The training introduces a best-abilities, person-centered approach to caring for persons with dementia. You will learn about the types and stages of dementia, communication tools and techniques, the role of memory and function in terms of a person’s best ability to function, behavior management strategies, and ways to support families and caregivers. NOTE: An optional exam is available and those who complete the course and pass the exam will receive a Dementia Capable Care Specialist certification, sponsored by Crisis Prevention
Institute (CPI).
