The Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) Program, conducted by the Alzheimer’s Association®, provides an opportunity for assisted living communities to gain a deeper understanding of person-centered, quality care based on the Dementia Care Practice Recommendations (DCPR). DCPR outlines recommendations for quality care practices based on a comprehensive review of current evidence, best practices, and expert opinion.
Using web-based video conference technology, dementia care experts come together with assisted living communities in six weekly, hour-long learning sessions and engage in case-based learning and brief presentations by dementia care experts. Click here for a list of topics.
Assisted living communities have two opportunities to participate. Please note, there is a limited capacity. Assisted living communities will be accepted into the program on a first-come, first-serve basis.
