Individuals living with dementia have complex care needs, long periods of disability, and heavy reliance on the support of their family and other caregivers. Clinicians can improve the quality of life for people with dementia and their caregivers through implementation of evidence-based practices that provide meaningful help and support.
CAPC has developed a new toolkit, Implementing Best Practices in Dementia Care, to make the case for improving dementia care, implement best practices, and train clinicians from all disciplines to better support people living with dementia and their caregivers. This toolkit is free and open to non-members.
The toolkit’s comprehensive resources include:
- The Case for Improving Dementia Care: A monograph and infographic outlining key statistics on the value of improving dementia care
- Getting Started: A comprehensive guide to improving identification, assessment, and support of people living with dementia and their caregivers
- Clinical Tools and Training: Online continuing education courses, clinical assessment tools, and resources for identifying and making referrals to community-based services
- Case Studies: Five case studies of evidence-based care models
CAPC also recently expanded its online curriculum, Best Practices in Dementia Care and Caregiver Support, with four additional courses, including a free course open to non-members, Supporting the Caregivers of People Living with Dementia.
