Common Sense Caregiving

Jenner Gardens Assisted Living & Memory Care  Port Richey, Florida Sept 2017

Dementia Care Training for the staff of Arden Courts of Lely Palms of Naples, Florida

Throughout the United States, the requirements for dementia care training in each and every state are below standards.

I attend to do something about that. I have put together classes for hospitals, home care agencies, health care facilities and first responders to train their staff in common sense care in a dementia friendly way.

The company or facility will be awarded a Purple Angel Plaque stating they have gone above and beyond their states requirement in extended dementia training and CEU’s may be applied where appropriate.

I'm also very adamant about making sure my classes cover all types of dementia, from Lewy body dementia, Frontotemporal  degeneration to Traumatic brain injuries. This is not only about Alzheimer's disease. I also thoroughly cover the best ways of communicating and handling behavior issues and so much more.

For more information on this program, including fees, please contact me through the contact form on the home page of this website.

These lapel pins are presented to all staff members that are trained.
