Updates AND Upcoming ALR Advisory Committee Meeting

1. Due to bad weather, the two free Loveland half-day dementia trainings have been rescheduled for June 5. The AM session is Sexuality & Intimacy in Residents with Dementia, and the PM session is Reducing Dementia-Related Behaviors: Non-Pharmacologic Approaches. Your trainer is Amelia Schafer, Director of Professional Education for the Alzheimer’s Association Colorado Chapter.

We encourage you to take advantage of this OPPORTUNITY to provide this high quality training for your staff. But, don’t take our word for it. Contact any assisted living provider who attended the Denver, Pueblo or Grand Junction sessions and they will tell you that that these trainings were an excellent use of staff time.
