Fairbanks workshop on dementia care
March 1, 2019
The Alaska Training Cooperative and Alzheimer’s Resource of Alaska will present “Dementia Care Workshop,” April 17 at the Alzheimer’s Resource of Alaska office in Fairbanks, 1 to 5:30 p.m. The purpose of the workshop is to build a foundation of knowledge that will enable learners to integrate new care strategies into their professional practice, ultimately using these strategies to increase the quality of life for people with dementia. The workshop teaches the fundamentals of dementia, as well as practical skills such as communication techniques, activities planning and best practices in de-escalating difficult behaviors.
The training is specifically for direct care workers such as certified nursing assistants, workers in assisted living homes, personal care attendants, in-home workers, care coordinators and family caregivers.
For those interested in Continuing Nursing Education credits, Alzheimer’s Resource of Alaska is an approved provider of Continuing Nursing Education by the Montana Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission of Accreditation.
