Our clinical training and support are the key aspect of our programs. We offer on-site Alzheimer's care training that will teach your staff how to manage the changing needs of patients, including ongoing support through monthly clinical webinars. The training is further supplemented with our Careguides, which are are "mini-diagnosis specific programs," designed for an interdisciplinary approach to managing a particular clinical issue.
The Careguides contain all the information needed to manage the behaviors associated with a specific diagnosis, including standards of assessment, assessment tools, and standardized patient/resident/family/para-professional teaching tools written at an elementary school reading level.
The clinical training is further supplemented by addtional materials, including our behavior cards, which are convient "cheat sheets" for professionals and paraprofessionals that provide a quick reference for managing a variety of challenging behaviors. We also provide competency based testing to ensure mastery of the material and award certificates upon completion of our copyrighted program.
