Bringing Dementia Training to Wisconsin

first_imgby, Chris Perna, The Eden Alternative BlogTweetShareShareEmail0 SharesThe Eden Alternative and LindenGrove, Inc. are partners on a grant proposal to fund Dementia Beyond Drugs training based on the award-winning book by G. Allen Power of the same name, Dementia Beyond Drugs. The 2-day training  from The Eden Alternative applies person-directed care techniques to promote growth, meaningful engagement, and improved well-being for people living with dementia.Thirty-three people from across four Wisconsin-based LindenGrove, Inc. long-term care communities will participate in an interactive training experience recently approved by the Helen Bader Foundation and the Women & Girls Fund of the Waukesha County Community Foundation. These foundations see real value in this training, which supports a nationwide call to action to reduce the use of antipsychotics in long-term care.A large number of individuals living with some form of dementia receiving antipsychotic drugs suffer from a quality of life that cries for an urgent answer. Too often, medication is used in attempts to modify challenging behaviors, in lieu of utilizing specific techniques that help identify the unmet need(s).LindenGrove campuses at Menomonee Falls, Mukwonago, New Berlin, and Waukesha are all members of the Eden Registry, which recognizes organizations across the continuum of care for their commitment to improving quality of life for the people who live and work there.  The Dementia Beyond Drugs training, which is scheduled for June 10-11, will prepare these four Registry Member communities to deepen their commitment to person-directed care, while playing a key role in the nationwide movement to reduce antipsychotics for people living with dementia.This grant partnership is an excellent example of how The Eden Alternative can partner with members of the Eden Registry and other organizations interested in bringing our educational offerings to their staff. We have been successful in securing grant funds for a variety of projects including creation of the Dementia Beyond Drugs curriculum, Dementia Beyond Drugs training, Certified Eden Associate training, and Embracing Elderhood training.With budgets getting tighter, we encourage you to look for opportunities to tap into funding from local foundations to support your training and education efforts. We would welcome the opportunity to partner with you to seek out grant funding. Please call us if you have any ideas!Related PostsEden Alternative Trainings Offer New Way to See DementiaThe Eden Alternative is launching new trainings focused on helping long-term care communities see dementia through new eyes.
