Reynaldo Morales, PT
Physical Therapist

"This was a very informative class. Even though I knew much of the content theoretically, I still learned so much because of all the great ideas presented by Mike and the other professionals in the class.

Mike didn't give a lecture - he facilitated an interactive experience with networking and fluid exchange of ideas born out of everyone's varied experiences.

This seminar was a worthwhile investment for healthcare providers or for anyone who works with individuals with dementia."

Roxanne DePietro-Hartman, OT 

"Better understanding of how to present information to other healthcare workers and families of patients with dementia. Great class, easy to follow, very informative."

Molly Kathleen Guzik, COTA
Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant

"The instructor was great. Dr. Chua kept the class active and had many experiences to share. He encouraged all of us to be the very best we can be.

Loved learning with other health care providers with the same interest in being the very best for our residents, clients, families or loved ones with Alzheimer's and dementia."

Jennifer Foster, LPN, LNHA

"I learned the types of Dementia and how to assist the client to engage in functional activity to prevent or decrease agitation of the caregiver and client.

I also learned how to conduct an interview regarding the client's abilities, physical function and cognitive status to best determine what level of assistance is needed to provide the best support.

This course helped me to understand how I can utilize my experience and knowledge to assist those with dementia and provide support the caregiver. "

Yolanda Bowdre, OTR/L
Occupational Therapist

"I already know most of the information on the CDP slides and book/manual since I've worked with the adult population for the past 5 years.

But Mike engaged and encouraged all the attendees to participate by presenting on a slide on two to develop confidence in presenting the materials to others and that was very beneficial because I was forced out of my comfort zone. 

He also added real world information on how to market our new learning/certification in order to impact more service consumers in our community, and most of those are new knowledge."

Kailani B. Talton, OTR/L
Occupational Therapist

I enjoyed the course! It was amazing and Mike made it super fun for us. I loved it that its via zoom, very convenient for everyone!

I've learned so many ideas on how to manage my patients through the experiences of other clinicians. The course was worth of my time, highly recommended!!!

- Dr. Giselle Tan, PT, DPT

Dr. Mike kept the energy going, always made sure we were participating since it was an online course, and always pulled in experiences from the students.

I learned a lot from everyone's sharing and questions. I feel more confident as a PT treating patients with dementia now.

 Dr. Jayme Brainard

Dr. Mike was NEVER boring, he is very engaging, the best instructor I had in my entire life.

- Dr. Camille Catchillar, PT, DPT, LSVT Big Clinician

Dr Mike Chua is informative, enthusiastic and inspiring! His passion for this population is evident and contagious! Very refreshing!


A great lesson! Gets to the point!

Amanda Fowler, COTA/L

Great course!! Learned so much but, even better, am inspired to take my skills to the next level and reach my target goals in relation to occupational therapy and the geriatric/dementia population! Mike was great and very encouraging; a wealth of information!

Kay Ryan, OTR/L

The Dementia Practitioner course is an eye-opener to clinicians like me how to approach and communicate effectively on patients with dementia. The seminar also depicted Dementia caregiver training that is imperative to someone who is taking care of patients with this condition. What I really like the most is the sharing of experiences and techniques from other clinicians from their actual patients’ day to day treatments as every individual has unique differences. I highly recommend this course to every clinician!
