Interactive Eldercare Training Programs


Dementia Live is a high impact, dementia simulation experience that immerses participants into life with dementia, resulting in a deeper understanding of what it's like to live with cognitive impairment and sensory change.


Compassionate Touch is an approach combining skilled touch and specialized communication that is shown to prevent behavioral expression in people with dementia and reduce job stress in care-partners.  In palliative care, it provides skilled touch with compassionate presence to enhance quality of life for those in the later stages of life. ​


This powerful educational program provides learners with practical tools to improve communications, respond to behavioral expressions, relieve caregiver stress and engage in meaningful activities with persons with dementia.
