Target Group: unregulated health care providers, acute care, and any community care agency staff working with the dementia population.
Goal: U-First! is designed to reach a larger number of people working directly with persons with dementia including PSWs, volunteers and family members.
U-First is a six-hour workshop on dementia care designed for unregulated health care providers who are involved in supporting persons with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. It is strongly encouraged and key to the success of the integration of the education into practice that supervisors of front-line staff access the U-First! program themselves in order to support workers and address organizational issues.
The Alzheimer Society of Oxford is certified to offer U-FIRST! For further information, please visit http://u-first.ca/
