Overview West Virginia University and the Alzheimer's Association, West Virginia Chapter, partnered to bring this course, "Dementia Care Training Certificate Program," to anyone interested in the field of dementia care. More than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of dementia, and are cared for by an estimated 15 million Americans.  As the baby boomers continue to age, the field of in-home dementia care will continue to grow as well.  Currently, the dementia care field is dramatically under-staffed to meet this high demand. The care needs of individuals with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia change throughout the course of the disease, but ultimately the individual will need 24/7 care.  Due to the nature of the disease, providing care can often be challenging when individuals are not trained in the specifics of dementia care.  Throughout this course you will learn the intricacies of Alzheimer's and dementia, and care practices that provide the highest quality of care to meet the needs of those who face this devastating disease. Dementia care is challenging, however the heartfelt rewards of caring for individuals with Alzheimer's far exceed the challenges. Objectives The purpose of this course is to provide the student with basic skills in the care of those with dementia and/or alzheimer's.  At the end of this course, the student should be able to: Understand the difference between Alzheimer's disease and other dementia. Identify and use alternate communication techniques when caring for someone with Alzheimer's or dementia. Acquire a foundation for best practices and approaches for daily engagement and care. Discuss a broad spectrum of caregiving and family issues, including end of life, safety, abuse, intimacy and care goals.   Course Structure and Schedule The cost is $199/per individual course and $500 for all 3 courses/certificate program.  Students can enroll at any time during the term.  A certificate of completion will be issued to students successfully meeting course requirements. Nursing has approved CEUs as follows:  17 Units - 1.0 CEU for each Unit once student has demonstrated completion of the unit and the evaluation form.  There is no charge for Nursing CEUs.
