Dementia Care Inservice Training Modules for Long-Term Care is a complete collection of research material for specialized dementia care training in the long-term care setting. Each of the eight modules is created to decrease preparation time for the presenter by including everything necessary for an effective presentation. The curriculum covers all aspects of specialized dementia care, including anatomy and physiology, basic principles of care, daily care, eating challenges, recreation and activities, common medical problems, and more. The easy to understand format and all-inclusive packet can be incorporated into any non-nursing forum such as support groups or informal caregivers and can be adapted for large or small audiences. Each module is concluded with summaries, scenarios and group activities to further the learning process. Dementia Care Inservice Training Modules for Long-Term Care will help prepare any member of the healthcare team for the daily ups and downs of dementia caregiving.

    • Adaptable format can be broken down into smaller segments for larger or smaller audiences, and utilized by support groups
    • I think this product would be excellent for long-term care facilities, not only for Nursing Assistants, but also for Nurses. There are a lot of good suggestions for the care of this type of patient, and Nurses may need a reminder of some of this [too].
