"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
"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
Amazing experience, adding more knowledge to my toolbox! Don’t pass this seminar up!
- Olivia Haynes, COTA/L
I learned various ways of how to improve upon my interacting with individual's with dementia, as well as how to further advocate for this population with nursing staff, caregivers, etc. I also enjoyed getting out of my comfort zone and "presenting" to the group.
Mike was excellent in his approach with this topic, and was very engaging. His enthusiasm was contagious and made this course worth-while!
Amanda Cote, OTR/L
I have worked with people with dementia for many years and this course provided such good overall training in helping caregivers understand all aspects of the disease. This training provided concise education in how to provide appropriate interventions so that those living with the disease may experience the highest quality of living as they so deserve.
