Benefits of Dementia Training

Dementia Capable Care Training (DCC) training provides front-line staff and health care workers with the tools they need to be the best care partner for those living at different stages of dementia. To help you drive measurable results, the program blends the Claudia Allen Cognitive Disabilities Model, showing you how to support persons at all cognitive levels and dementia stages, with Kitwood’s model of person-centered care and CPI’s verbal de-escalation techniques.

Reduce pharmacological interventions

DCC provides you with the training and tools to prevent and de-escalate distress behaviors without using drugs (nonpharmacological interventions).

Training partners you can trust

Kim Warchol and her team of experts have been leaders in the field of dementia care and memory care programming and design for over 30 years.

Easy access with 100% virtual training

Instructor certification is achieved through virtual training to keep your high-risk population safe, minimizing staff time off the floor and eliminating travel costs.
