The CARES® Activities of Daily™ Living 10-Hour Online Training Program focuses on the activities of daily living (ADLs) across all levels of thinking decline, progressing from normal thinking to the first signs of dementia all the way to late and end stages of the disease process. In each level of decline, specific strategies are presented for a variety of ADLs including bathing, dressing, eating, grooming, mouth care, and using the bathroom. Since a lot of the direct care you provide is related to ADLs, these thoughtful and effective strategies can be used immediately with anyone for whom you provide care.
This program has 10 modules (10 hours). The modules include:
