These training options are targeted for paid caregivers such as Nurses, Social Workers, CNA’s, Home Health Care Aids, Therapists, Companions and other professionals seeking to improve their skill level of working with dementia clients.  Whether an in-home provider or working in a facility this training has something to offer.  Tom is licensed by DOEA (ALF7110)
