We recognize the importance of education in continually improving the model of dementia care and are pleased to partner with educational institutions for learning enhancement, training and internship opportunities.
We invite you to review the following examples of some of our most recent educational partnerships:
Enhanced Caregiver Education Pilot Study
In our continuing goal to develop a best practice model of dementia care, McCormick Dementia Services is partnering with Western University and Behavioural Supports Ontario to conduct a pilot project for an enhanced education series for caregivers of people with dementia. With the support of the McCormick Care Foundation, the FACET project — Family Caregiver Education and Training – involves studying the interaction between caregivers and simulated dementia patients to discover new ways to engage in meaningful activity and to minimize or redirect agitated behaviours.
