Dementia training is serious business. As we grapple with the exponential growth of people living with dementia, aging services providers are looking closely at programs that will improve outcomes for their residents, clients, staff, families and support business goals.
The AGE-u-cate team has been hard at work since the launch of Dementia Live® in 2015 to deliver a program that meets the complex needs across the spectrum of aging services to serve better those living with dementia and their care partners.
Integrated by over 800 organizations and agencies in the United States, Canada, and Australia, Dementia Live® has a robust value in the aging services industry. This evidence-informed training program is guided by science-based experiential learning and microlearning strategies. Placing the learner directly in touch with the realities of living with dementia, they gain more profound levels of understanding and knowledge and receive practical skill-building tools and techniques that effectively improve care and quality of life for care partners.
Dementia Live® is a not-to-be-missed “wow” experience! Participants have an extraordinary opportunity for a real-world view of what it might be like living with dementia. This hands-on, immersive experience challenges participants by transforming their understanding of symptoms associated with dementia and transforming empathy, awareness and understanding. We can begin the dementia-capable care journey when people are engaged intellectually, emotionally, socially, soulfully, and physically. That is the power of Dementia Live®.
Dementia Live® provides an essential foundation to turn knowledge into action. All who participate will learn new empowerment tools to improve communication, care processes and better understand how new techniques integrate as launching pads for person-centered care practices. Together with the experience and empowerment tools, Dementia Live® inspires care partners to feel, think, and act in ways that create a compassionate, respectful atmosphere to live, work, and visit – all of which are essential for those who work in aging services.
We invite you to schedule a demo to see how Dementia Live can ignite change in your organization.
