With the fast changing events and trends in our field, we will now be including information about the Dementia Profession. We will be posting information, education, classes that provide opportunites and information about survey requirements related to the dementia survey guidelines (CMS questions c8-c10). Many Assisted Livings are now requesting that their Activity Directors/Life Enrichment Directors also become Certified Dementia Practitioners. Long Term Facilities will be experiencing the Dementia Survey Requirements and will be required under sections CMS8-9 and 10 to meet these requirements. We will post current information along with opportunties for class information and locations to further your Activity and Dementia Education. We hope to always be your valuable partner in career knowledge and growth. READ our commentary article.... REALLY, DEMENTIA FOCUSED SURVEYS under the Trend Section....
