Dementia Trainings for Direct Care Staff

Dementia Trainings for Direct Care Staff (Revised 6/8/15)
The value of understanding Alzheimer's disease and dementia is immeasurable for staff who care for people living with the disease.  Direct-care workers, such as nurses, nurse aides, home health aides, and personal- and home-care aides, make up the majority of staff who deliver health care services to older adults, including those with Alzheimer's or other dementias. These workers have demanding, and important jobs.  Often, they have not received the training needed to provide quality dementia care.  When direct-care staff do receive training, research shows positive benefits.  ACT on Alzheimer’s
® has compiled a list of dementia trainings to help you find the right training for your needs.
