CARES® Dementia Advanced Care™ 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. It is very difficult to deliver daily care, have good communication, or respond to behavior if someone is in pain. Each of the modules incorporates advanced training in the CARES® Approach in addition to a wide variety of exercises and video activities of real people with dementia, CNAs, and staff members.
