A course for professionals who wish to learn more about dementia, associated needs and behaviors and supports needed.

About this Event

The NCCDP ADDC Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Care Seminars are open to anyone who works in long term care or is a caregiver.

Statistics prove that nearly 50% of the residents of long term care facilities have been diagnosed with dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease. This number will continue to grow. The only way to provide successful dementia care is to understand the disease process and the significance behind the dementia related behaviors.

Also dementia effects every community. We experience the needs of someone with dementia in our workplaces, our community, our neighborhood.

- To provide fundamental education on dementia and dementia care

- To enhance the quality of life of dementia patients through education care providers
