The Need for Effective Dementia Training

As a segment of the world’s population enters its later years, the prevalence of dementia and the need for effective care increases as well. Dementia training can mitigate the strain on caregivers. The positive impacts can be felt at both the staff and patient levels.

Improving quality of life
Dementia training empowers caregivers to provide personalized care that greatly improves the quality of life of their patients. This approach creates a supportive environment that preserves patients’ dignity and independence instead of restricting it.
Fostering empathy and understanding
CPI’s dementia training modules provide a person-centred framework for care partners that foster’s the empathy necessary for building trust. The result is dementia care that resonates at the personal level.
Reducing caregiver stress
CPI's dementia courses teach staff the dementia basics and effective strategies for managing distressing behaviour. This can reduce caregiver burnout and increase job satisfaction.
