Education and awareness

In addition to the First Link® Learning Series for people with dementia and their care partners, we provide customized education programs to a wide variety of target groups.  Training sessions, workshops, and public presentations are available on many dementia-related topics.  Examples of various workshops/presentations and their target audiences include:

  • Gentle Persuasive Approaches (GPA) in Dementia Care – a one-day workshop for health care workers in a variety of care settings
  • U-First! – a one-day workshop for front-line health care workers in a variety of care settings
  • Healthy Brain – a one hour presentation for the members of the public who are interested in maintaining their brain health
  • Church groups – a presentation for members of congregations who are interested in learning about supporting their members who are experiencing memory loss
  • Grade 5 presentation – a one-hour presentation designed to increase children's understanding of Alzheimer's disease, methods of keeping the brain healthy, and the value of older persons in our society

Other popular presentations include Overview of Dementia, Communicating with the Person with Dementia, and many other dementia-related topics.

We also publish a newsletter twice per year that contains educational information, and we host an annual Alzheimer Education Conference for health care providers.
