Comprehensive CMS-Supported Online Dementia Training at Bargain Prices for Members

For the past year, CARES® Complete Catalog™ has been providing organizations and facilities access to all 6 CARES online dementia training courses for one low price. Due to growing customer interest and the recommendations of several AHCA/NCAL members, this option is now available for individuals, too!

For only $149.95—a savings of more than 25% over buying the 6 programs and certifications one at a time—you get the same 32 hours/32 modules of video-based dementia care training featuring real people with dementia and their caregivers in everyday scenarios. AHCA/NCAL members receive an additional 10% off the $149.95 purchase price by entering promo code AHCA10 when ordering. 

CARES® is the only online dementia training program recommended nationally by CMS to meet the Affordable Care Act Section 6121 mandate for nurse aides. And, staff that is well trained in dementia care and managing difficult behaviors is key to safely reducing the off-label use of antipsychotics – one of AHCA/NCAL’s Quality Initiative goals

In the new individual purchase option, each of the 6 programs is available for 10 days. Start with the prerequisite course, CARES® Dementia Basics™ (4 modules/4 hours), complete it within 10 days, and take the Alzheimer’s Association essentiALZ® certification exam (at no additional cost!). Then, continue with the CARES® Plus courses in any order and at your convenience (each program is activated individually and is then available for completion within 10 days). It is recommended that CARES® participants take the associated essentiALZ® Plus certification exam immediately after completing each course.

To purchase the CARES Complete Catalog for individuals or facilities, call (952) 928-7722 or visit www.hcinteractive.com/ccc (for facilities) or www.hcinteractive.com/ccci (for individuals).
