NADRC's "Dementia Training Resources for Professionals and Volunteers" provides links to training and educational materials for professionals and volunteers working with people living with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD). The resources are intended to increase the dementia-capability of organizations, professionals, and volunteers by providing information on how to recognize, understand, and meet the unique needs of people living with ADRD and their caregivers. 

The sections cover:

  • Advance planning
  • Aging and Disability Resource Center training
  • Caregiving
  • Communication
  • Dementia training
  • Diverse populations and dementia
  • Non-Alzheimer’s dementia
  • People with dementia who live alone
  • People with intellectual and developmental disabilities and dementia
  • Person-centered/family-centered care
  • Understanding behavioral symptoms.

The resource also includes sections specific to first responders, hospital and health care organizations, primary care providers and other health care professionals, and school personnel.

The training resources are available free of charge and come from government agencies, academia, Alzheimer’s disease centers, geriatric workforce education programs, ACL’s dementia grantees, NADRC, and others.
