CARES Dementia Related Behavior   

The CARES® Dementia-Related Behavior Online Training Program focuses on the behavior of people with dementia that is hard to understand and difficult to respond to. Sometimes referred to as "challenging behavior" or "inappropriate behavior," we use the term "dementia-related behavior" as a person-centered, respectful term that does not put blame on the person with dementia.

You’ll learn thoughtful and effective ways to care for people with dementia when they are confused, frustrated, scared, or angry. You'll learn what to do when a person with dementia yells, curses, hits, kicks, or bites. And, you'll learn when and how to respond to sexual behavior. Knowing these new ways of caring can make the behavior less severe. This can make caregiving less stressful for you and make life better for the person with dementia.

This program has 4 modules (4 hours). The modules include:

  1. Introduction to Dementia-Related Behavior
  2. Using the CARES® Approach with Dementia-Related Behavior
  3. Breaking down the CARES® Approach for Dementia-Related Behavior
  4. Key Responses to Dementia-Related Behavior

There is also a "Values" section that helps users understand how values and beliefs can impact care.
