The Dementia Network Calgary is launching the Designated Care Partner training program in partnership with the Canadian Red Cross, the Government of Canada (Employment and Social Development Canada) and the Alzheimer Society of Calgary.
As experts in infectious disease training, the Red Cross will provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Infection Prevention and Control protocols (IP&C) training to 400 family caregivers in Alberta over the next few months. The Alzheimer Society of Calgary will provide optional training geared to communicating with someone who has dementia with the added complexity of wearing a mask.
This program is open to any family caregiver in Alberta and provides training in an online classroom led in real time by an instructor, who can provide feedback and answer questions.
This opportunity is also available to continuing care/hospice organizations (one person per organization) in order to provide operators with an understanding of the training that is being provided to families.
Please see attached documents for the poster and invitation letter.
