At Home With Dementia Care
Approximately 70% of people with dementia or cognitive impairment are living at home. To better respond to their needs, the Missouri Alliance for Home Care has partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association, St. Louis Chapter to bring you this training opportunity. This 90 minute DVD-based training program is designed to educate home care workers about the disease and train them on how to provide safe and effective care in a home setting.
In the DVD, Zoe Dearing, Professional Education Coordinator, Alzheimer’s Association St. Louis Chapter, addresses the five basic topics required by statute for home care workers. Each topic is prefaced with an interview of a family currently struggling with Alzheimer’s disease. Their willingness to share personal experiences provides participants with a unique, insightful and inspirational glance into Alzheimer’s disease.
The program offers an effective way to provide comprehensive standards of excellence in the home care profession and delivery of dementia care. Using the DVD and handouts, employees will learn basic quality information that follows the most recent guidelines and standards of care, so you can be confident they are receiving quality regulation-compliant dementia education.
