Opportunity to Learn Dementia Care Practices

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.

  • October 5 – November 9 from 2-3 CT
  • November 30 – January 4 from 2-3 CT

This opportunity is open to teams from assisted living communities. If you are interested in being a part of this unique opportunity, please complete this registration form.

If you have any questions, please email Emily Koebnick (ekoebnick@alz.org).
