Accepting The Challenge: Providing The Best Care For People With Dementia

This DVD will help professional and frontline caregivers better understand the behaviors and symptoms of people with dementia while building or improving their caregiving skills. A master training team consisting of an occupational therapist and nurse practitioner introduces a powerfully effective new way of thinking about and caring for older adults with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Informed, person-centered care leads to the highest quality of life for long-term care residents.

Divided into four modules for progressive learning, Accepting the Challenge provides training on multiple levels for all learning styles. Interactive classroom lecture and demonstration, for example, is followed by on-site interactions with actual assisted living residents to show both the use and effectiveness of the techniques.

The DVD also features review capabilities for specific segments within each module and a testing section that allows learners to demonstrate proficiency and receive continuing education credits for dementia-specific training.
