CARES® Dementia Care for Families™
Are you concerned about the possibility of memory loss? Or, are you caring for a loved one with memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, or dementia and would like to learn more about the disease and caregiving techniques?

The 3 modules (3 hours) include:

  1. Understanding Memory Loss
  2. Living with Dementia
  3. Using the CARES® Approach

The CARES® Approach you will learn in this program stands for:

C – Connect with the Person
A – Assess Behavior
R – Respond Appropriately
E – Evaluate What Works
S – Share with Others

The online program is rich with activities and video interviews of family caregivers, people with dementia, and dementia experts. We suggest that facility administrators using CARES purchase a site license that includes this program so that everyone (staff and families) can have a common understanding and language around the CARES Approach and dementia care.

CARES® Dementia Care for Families™ was funded in part by a grant from the National Institute on Aging and was developed in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Association and a national team of experts.
