Join the ACL-funded National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center (NADRC) for the webinar, “Strengthening the Dementia Capable Workforce: Dementia Training for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Service Providers.”
As the population of individuals living with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) ages, so does the incidence of dementia. Communities need to be prepared to serve and support this population. Education is one of the foundational components to ensure person-centered care is provided and systems can meet the unique needs of persons living with I/DD and dementia. This webinar will explore educational programs utilized when training providers of aging and I/DD services and how Ohio began to build systems to support individuals, families, and providers within local communities. Lessons learned, impact findings from educational sessions, accessible and replicable resources, and information on the overall system changes will be shared.
NADRC webinars are free of charge and open to the public, although pre-registration is required. The webinars are recorded and will be available for future viewing on the NADRC website. Closed captioning is available during the webinar and will be included in the recording.
