Delaware Regulation 4468, [PDF] relating to hospice facilities, had a public hearing on April 28, 2016. The regulations mandate in-service training and continuing education regarding annual dementia-specific training that includes: 
  • Communicating with persons diagnosed as having Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia;
  • The psychological, social, and physical needs of those persons; and
  • Safety measures which need to be taken with those persons.

With our train-the-trainer option, select staff can be certified to teach the Dementia Capable Care training program to other staff on a continuing basis.
