August 2018: District Certified in "Dealing with Dementia"

The District is pleased to announce an additional training and educational program for family caregivers of loved ones with dementia.  Developed by the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving (RCI), the Dealing with Dementia program provides tips and strategies for caregivers on best practices for caring for their loved ones and themselves. The goal is for Alzheimer's and dementia family caregivers to gain a better understanding of dementia, utilize strategies to effectively manage problem behaviors, and handle caregiver stress and burnout.  This program includes a manual, a fun, interactive four-hour group session, and is available at no charge.  This program is funded by the Alzheimer's Disease Initiative of the Administration for Community Living.  If you or someone you know could benefit from this program, please call the District at 800-900-8582 and ask to speak with someone about the Dealing with Dementia program.
