Certified Dementia Caregiving Training

Dementia care requires specialized training.  Several states across the US now require a minimum level of education for direct care staff.  Click here to see the course listing for the program, “Certified Dementia Caregiver”.  Making sure your staff is educated and certified means that your residents receive better care, your staff feels appreciated by the training you’ve provided, and your community senses the importance you place on specialized skills.

This course is available at our location or can be brought to yours.  You decide.  Our experts are ready to serve you and your team.

Alzheimer's Source Book

The purpose of this guide is to help staff make each day great for residents with dementia. It describes how to plan and put into place activities that are meaningful to residents.  It also includes dozens of detailed descriptions of specific activities.

The guide is designed for individuals who plan and lead activities, including activity directors, special care unit directors and direct care workers.  It may also be used as a resource by nurses, social workers and even volunteers and family members.


 
Themed Rooms for Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Centers Back to top
Alzheimer’s Care Group provides themed settings throughout the Alzheimer's program. Themed settings, including kitchens and workshops, stimulate appropriate resident interactions because of the home-like features and familiar furnishings.
The Trainer’s Toolbelt Back to top
The goal of the staff training tool belt worn by the program director, charge nurse, or SDC is to provide CNAs with a learning tool to help the Alzheimer's care program learn more about Alzheimer’s disease. Each tool belt contains a large stack of cards that asks questions pertaining to Alzheimer’s disease, the implications of this disease and appropriate care approaches. For every correct answer a staff member is rewarded with a poker chip. If an individual collects more than 3 chips, he/she will receive an appropriate reinforcement/reward, such as gum,candy, soft drink or coupon for successfully answering questions and understanding the best care approaches. The tool belt comes with a canvas work apron (ties at waist, one size fits most), cards, and poker chips.

Music and Television Programming Back to top
When a person has dementia, it is quite typical for them to live in the past – in years during which they were most active. We find that most people with Alzheimer’s remember and recognize life from the 1950s to 1970s. With that in mind, Alzheimer’s Care Group has collaborated with musicians to provide a series of musical cds and dvds appropriate for cognitive stimulation of people living with dementia. The selected music and television programming dates back to the time period they remember.
