As Alzheimer’s affects a person’s cognitive ability for years, not merely weeks or months, transportation solutions provided by the individual and/or caregivers are often not viable in the long-term. Public transportation is often the best alternative for people living with Alzeimer’s and related dementias, but transit professionals often lack an understand of these disabilities, their signs and symptoms, or how best to assist people with Alzheimer’s and related dementias.
Developed specifically for bus operators, this convenient, introductory mini-course will cover the basics including the difference between Alzheimer’s and dementia, their signs and symptoms, and how best to assist passengers when Alzhemer’s and/or dementia is suspected. The course will include 2 pre-recorded webinars which can be viewed at anytime during the course and 2 short quizzes.
Registration for this course closes on Friday, December 13.
