These workshops are partially subsidized by DQA.

Continuing Education for Caregivers: Training for Trainers: This full-day workshop at a cost of $150 per participant, including lunch, introduces participants to over 30 hours of Caregiver Project training materials designed to prevent abuse and neglect, improve professional caregiving skills, increase quality of resident care and meet continuing education requirements for caregivers in settings regulated by DQA.

  • Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease: The Basics
  • Managing Crisis Situations in Dementia Care
  • Responding to Challenging Situations
  • Compassionate Care and Communication Techniques

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to train direct caregivers and other staff in their own facilities.

Investigating and Reporting Allegations of Misconduct (for all DQA-regulated facilities): This half-day workshop at a cost of $120 per participant will help participants identify the key components of conducting internal investigations into allegations of abuse, neglect and misappropriation.
