Time to read: 2 minutes.

Register here for this webinar.

Join the Public Health Center of Excellence on Dementia Caregiving for a talk with experts who have developed resources for public health agencies and service providers that make it easy to find, select, and implement dementia caregiver programs. Tune in to hear their “lessons learned” and get strategies for choosing the best public health programs in your states and communities.

Making sure that high quality dementia caregiving programs are available in the community is important. How can we be confident that these programs are not received well, but effective as well? There are tools available for public health agencies and service providers that make it easy to find, select and implement dementia caregiver programs that are not only effective, but the “right fit” also. This presentation will address challenges, resources (including Best Practice Caregiving) and how research and practice is effectively bridged so that we can provide the best possible programs for those who care for people living with dementia.
