Access to quality rural healthcare, resources, education, and support is a growing challenge in the US and around the globe. What does this mean for the growing numbers of persons living with dementia and their families who are caring for them? How does this affect the quality of care being offered by nursing homes and other care providers?
I am humbled and honored to work with such amazing and talented people. As a trainer, I believe we learn as much from those we are training as they learn from us. We are all practicing when it comes to dementia care. Every day is a new day and no matter where we fit into the spectrum, we all need each other to learn and grow. Let's talk about person-centered care practices.
