Maine Dementia Care Partnership presents free educational program and toolkit
Part one of the session welcomes back popular speaker, Eric Collett, from A Mind for All Seasons, who will share current brain research that allows us to understand many of the root causes of cognitive decline and intervene to help people function better.
Part two of the program will introduce the Partnership's new resident-centered dementia care toolkit. The “Is it for me, or for you?” Resident-Centered Dementia Care Toolkit is the result of many months of grant-funded work by Partnership members and clinicians. It provides a conceptual framework, roadmap, and step-by-step guide to help nursing homes successfully reduce off-label antipsychotic drug use within their settings.
As a requirement of the grant funding, the Partnership will engage at least 40 nursing homes in a formalized effort to implement at least one toolkit item. Interested providers will sign a letter of agreement and receive targeted support from Partnership members as they embark on their chosen project. The toolkit will be distributed free of charge to every Maine nursing home.
