Ensign Services is the proud sponsor of the Dementia Capable Care Foundations Course to be held November 10, 2012. This Foundation course will be held in Santa Rosa, California at the Courtyard Marriott and provides participants with a common framework about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD), a best-abilities perspective, dementia stages, behavior management, and care techniques to promote the best ability to function and person-centered care. Material is presented in a lecture format with small group activities to apply principles learned. Gina Tucker-Roghi, MHS, OTR/L and Therapy Resource for Northern Pioneers, will be the lecturer for this course.
