Dementia Care Certification Course

The Copper Ridge Institute has developed a modular training program designed for the education of health care professionals, primarily nurses and nursing aides, in collaboration with investigators associated with the Johns Hopkins ADRC (Drs. Lyketsos and Baker). Ideal for training and orientation at long-term care facilities or educational institutions, this modular training program is targeted at a very basic level so that it can be accessible to caregivers, regardless of educational background. The Dementia Care Certification Course satisfies the Maryland State requirement for education on mental illness and cognitive impairment for caregivers and staff working in assisted living facilities.
