Addressing Geriatric Challenges & Supporting Families A Dementia Certification Training


When a person is living with dementia, everyone they love is impacted by the diagnosis, too.

Oftentimes, family members are tasked with the day-to-day care, and they’re constantly worried about their loved one getting worse.

Whether it’s Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias, dealing with cognitively declining patients is challenging for even the most skilled nurses—much less a patient’s child, sibling, or spouse with no medical training.

With our expert insights and decades of experience, you will better understand the challenges your aging patients face…

… and learn ways to support their caregivers and families every step of the way.

This Dementia Care Specialist training gives you proven methods and strategies to achieve the best outcomes for your geriatric patients.

Best of all, you’ll become an Evergreen Certified Dementia Care Specialist (ECDCS)

… and the experienced nurse your patients, and their families, deserve on their side!
