As the only certified CDP instructor in Kansas by the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners, I feel grateful to provide these critical - and required - courses statewide to both health professionals on a path to become certified dementia practitioners, as well as anyone whose life is being impacted by dementia.
Nurses & Direct Care Staff - Care Managers & Administrators - Directors of Nursing & Activity Directors - Home Care Agencies -
Friends / Family / Relatives
Taught both in person and online, the course provides key tools to ease tension, frustration, and conflict - for all involved. With everyone sharing a common goal and practicing new and proven skills, the person with dementia sees less decline and anxiety. In some cases, medication is decreased or even eliminated.
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" is never more true than dealing with dementia, because dementia can be prevented! That's right, dementia can be prevented, starting in the home.
Aside from wanting to stay in our homes as long as we can, consider the financial aspect. Once someone with dementia enters the never-ending world of assisted care, costs can range $5,000 to $9,000 per month.
In comparison, in-home, preventive measures are a fraction of the price ($150 per month on average). The family stays together longer, and quality of life improves for everyone.
Please reach out to learn more about in-home dementia prevention, the best life investment one can make.
Everyone's journey is different. Yours can start getting better today.
