The Alzheimer’s Association Care Academy will be holding two training programs to teach care professionals how to provide effective and compassionate care to people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia.
The Alzheimer’s Association premier training program uses a combination of methods including lecture, small and large group exercises, video presentations, and role-playing to teach professional caregivers how to provide effective and compassionate care to residents/clients with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia.
Facility staff will learn how to recognize dementia symptoms, skills to assess the abilities of the resident and confidence to set and adapt caregiving goals. Staff will also learn how to adjust their expectations and change the way they interact with the resident, change the situation and change the environment to improve the quality of life for the resident and everyone in the caregiving situation.

Since then, I have had a strong interest in helping and supporting our senior community as they age and are unable to care for themselves.Coming from a family of physicians, I am excited to be involved in the medical community by providing the highest levels of non-clinical in-home care to our clients and their families.With my work experience, I firmly believe that ApexCare can touch many lives and have a great impact on our local senior community.
Prior to joining ApexCare, I worked in a wide variety of industries and have owned multiple businesses ranging from construction to mortgage banking.Outside of work, I am an active youth soccer and basketball coach, having coached recreational soccer for over 8 years and elementary school basketball for over 4 years.I graduated with a BS in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and received a Masters of Management degree from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.My career has been focused on building great organizations that deliver the highest absolute levels of service to our clients.I look forward to continuing this passion with ApexCare.
