• Approaching Alzheimer’s: First Responder Training – This online course will help prepare you to respond to common calls involving a person with dementia. Start at the Briefing for tips and information that can help in any situation. Then, hear from other first responders and learn how to respond to typical calls. In each topic you’ll take a quiz yourself to test your new knowledge of the new tips. If you’d like to learn more, you can explore all of the topics in greater detail. Complete all topics to earn a certificate or simply review those most relevant to your role.
