CARES Dementia Safety Topics   


CARES® Dementia SafetyTopics™ focuses on strategies for communicating with someone with dementia, help with wandering, food and fluid intake, preventing falls, eliminating restraints, and the overarching critical topic of pain.

This program has 6 modules (6 hours) including:

  1. Making a Connection with the Person
  2. Eating Well
  3. Recognizing Pain
  4. Minimizing Falls
  5. Rethinking Wandering
  6. Minimizing and Eliminating Restraints
