Description



Program Overview

GPA Basics is a practical and interactive education session that equips care providers with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to deliver person-centered dementia care. GPA Certified Coaches act as facilitators, employing multiple learner-directed strategies to promote basic understand of dementia and its relationship with a person's responsive behaviours.

Participants learn to apply emotional, environmental, and interpersonal communication strategies that serve to diffuse challenging behaviours. Participants will also learn and demonstrate suitable and respectful physical self-protection techniques to use in situations of risk. This learning allows the participant to enter a workplace confident in their understanding that each person with dementia is a unique human being capable of interacting with the outside world. GPA Basics participants gain immediately useful strategies for effective communication and safety practices at the point-of-care, promoting comfort and human dignity.

(Please note: GPA Basic education has been developed and evaluated for delivery within health care organizations. At this time, GPA Basics is not recommended for informal health care providers or volunteers who are not currently employed or seeking employment in a health care setting.)
