New Learning Modules for Dementia Caregivers

Dear Grantees and Community Partners:

We wanted to make you aware of a new resource available.

New learning modules for dementia caregivers
The Health Resources Services Administration has released eleven new learning modules as a supplemental resource to the Agency's Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementia's Training Curriculum that trains the primary care workforces about dementia care and helps providers address caregiver needs. Four are aimed at providers, with seven for unpaid caregivers. These are a wonderful resource for CMS beneficiaries and their families and caregivers. Check out the new learning modules!
