"Activity Based Alzheimer Care: Building a Therapeutic Program" is a one-day, interactive training program designed for activity professionals who have a basic understanding of Alzheimer?s disease, and whose primary job responsibilities include activity programming design and implementation. The "Activity Based Alzheimer Care: Building a Therapeutic Program" curriculum was developed in 1998 by the Alzheimer?s Association national office and remains one of the staple programs in the Association?s professional education series.

Through six 45-minute modules, ABAC helps participants to learn a range of skills from assessment and program design through teamwork and evaluation strategies. The program features energetic, interactive exercises, case studies and discussion exercises. Participants also receive a manual to use during the program and as a reference tool.

Continuing education credit is available.

The cost will be $50 and pre-registration by April 10th is required. An activity manual, lunch, and other materials will be provided. For more information or to register, please contact Gail Marion: 1-800-273-2555 or gail.marion@alz.org.
