Project Title: Pilot test and scale online dementia training for unregulated care providers adapted from the award-winning iGeriCare platform
This project will test and scale online training about dementia and caregiver well-being for unregulated care providers. Based on the award-winning iGeriCare dementia e-learning tool, the project team has created a series of four e-learning courses that care providers can complete at their own pace. The courses cover the following core topics: foundations of dementia and mild cognitive impairment, responsive behaviours and mental health, home supports and safety, and health promotion and caregiver wellness. Progress and completion will be tracked by a learning management system. In the second half of the project, the project team will scale and spread the online training, promoting it provincially and nationally to unregulated care providers and other stakeholder organizations.
