DementiaLiveTMCertified Dementia Live Provider

DementiaLiveTM is a sensitivity awareness training program provided through the Age-u-Cate Institute. Participants can experience what it is be like to live with dementia and cognitive impairment, building awareness of the condition’s symptoms and gaining an in-depth understanding of the neurodegenerative disease.

The training helps participants to improve communication and decrease misunderstanding with patients and their families. It also advocates for person-centered care. Right at Home Haverhill introduced the training to Salem, Haverhill, and Somerville in the summer of 2016. Since then, hundreds of medical professionals including nurses, case managers, caregivers and social workers had completed the program.
