LeadingAge Iowa is partnering with LeadingAge Illinois to offer a Dementia Leadership Course.

Overview
For more than 20 years, LeadingAge Illinois and Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center have offered the Dementia Leadership Course, a comprehensive educational series intended to provide dementia leaders with information they need to develop their skills and grow in their roles.

Dementia experts have recently re-designed this interactive program and added an ongoing networking component. The course provides a framework to teach the specialized skills and competencies needed to provide exceptional dementia services.

Upon completion of the course, participants will join the Dementia Leadership Network.  Through a private forum, the Network will offer resources and training material to use for staff education, and allow participants to continue to interact, connect, share ideas, and ask questions.

Led by dementia care experts from Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center and the Rush University, the Dementia Leadership Course and Network brings leaders in all levels of dementia care together to:

  • Hear from the experts in the industry.
  • Receive the most current information and research findings about memory care.
  • Learn about best practices for supporting dementia patients and their families.
  • Share information and ideas with peers.
  • Participate in interactive small-group activities.
  • Network and access resources after the course ends.
