About CARES® Activities of Daily Living™ 4-Hour

The CARES® Activities of Daily Living 4-Hour Online Training Program focuses on understanding each stage of dementia and how to respond to the changes that each stage presents while assisting someone living with dementia with activities of daily living (ADL). This program features dressing, eating, using the bathroom, and mobility, transferring and positioning. The award winning CARES® Approach is also featured.

This program does not attempt to teach better skills in performing these activities of daily living. Instead, it focuses directly on how care must change when caring for someone living with dementia. Very small changes in how care ADL care is provided make the total difference in having a pleasant, successful experience vs. possibly getting yelled at, sworn at, bitten, or even punched.

This program has 5 modules (4 hours). The modules include:

  1. Introduction to Activities of Daily Living
  2. Dressing
  3. Eating
  4. Using the Bathroom
  5. Mobility, Transferring, and Positioning
