What is the Well-Being Model for Dementia Care? The Well-Being Model for Dementia Care was developed to assist in creating and sustaining a culture of person-centered care for those living with dementia in the long-term care setting. This model was designed to provide low-cost, less intrusive, and safer alternatives for residents and healthcare providers alike when practiced consistently. This ultimately reduces poor health outcomes, hospital and geriatric- psychiatric admissions, and the cost of dementia care for facilities.
Who is the "Dementia Champion?" The Dementia Champion is someone who is currently in a leadership position (i.e. DON or ADON) who will lead the Well-Being Model Initiative. The last two hours of training will be geared towards equipping the Dementia Champion with the information they need to lead their facility in the Well-Being Model. The Dementia Champion will also receive a second certification for completing this 2-hour Dementia Champion training.
Who should attend? EVERYONE! Administrator, DON, ADON, Nurse Consultant, CNAs, Social Service, and Activity Directors – Anyone that has contact with patients living with dementia.
Continuing Education Units: 8 contact hours have been requested for licensed nursing home administrators and licensed nurses through the Arkansas State Office of Long Term Care for this Continuing Education Activity.
