Dementia Care

About the Dementia Care Certificate Program

This educational series is designed to improve the quality of care given to persons with dementia. It consists of four different modules – two webinars and two, six-hour workshops and is available for participation in individual topics of interest. To earn the certificate of completion, individuals must participate in all four modules. The certificate is a voluntary credential demonstrating professional study of a particular topic area. It does not denote certification or that someone is certified in dementia care.
