CHICAGO, IL—June 30, 2005. HealthCare Interactive, Inc’s (HCI) in pleased to announce its agreement to jointly market its CARES® training program together with the national office of the Alzheimer’s Association. The training program will serve as the online training portion of the Alzheimer’s Association multi-year Campaign for Quality Residential Care.
“This is an exciting time for both of our organizations,” states HCI President John Hobday. “For the first time, residential care facilities will be able to access quality training programs over the Internet backed by the trusted name of the Alzheimer’s Association.”
The CARES program is an innovative, web-based learning program for direct care workers and other staff who care for those with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia. This training program is unique from other dementia training programs because it specifically incorporates and teaches the CARES approach, a method of providing care for residents with dementia: Connect with the Resident, Assess Behavior, Respond Appropriately, Evaluate What Works, Share with the Team.
When released later this year, nursing homes and assisted living facilities from around the country will be able to access the CARES program 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any Internet-connected computer.
