Help Your Shining Stars Shine a Little Brighter by Becoming CARES® Dementia Specialists

Dave Kyllo


You know the shining stars on your frontline caregiving staff. Help those extraordinary individuals shine a little brighter as caregivers by enrolling them in the entire HealthCare Interactive CARES® online dementia care training curriculum (6 courses/32 modules) by earning the CARES® Dementia Specialist™ credential. 


This affordable credential is an excellent way to recognize outstanding performance and position your shining stars to be valued peer mentors for other frontline caregivers. By completing all six training programs, submitting their documentation, passing the required 100-point online exam, and being approved, staff members will be able to use the C.D.S. credential after their name on their name badges and on their business cards.


Those who earn the CARES® Dementia Specialist™ credential will be placed on an international registry of people who earn and hold a current C.D.S. credential. In addition, each will receive an official recognition package that includes a C.D.S. lapel pin, a CARES card, and a frameable certificate. 


The CARES curriculum consists of 32 hours of online video-based person-centered dementia care education. Once activated, staff members will have 10-day access to each of the 5 professional caregiver courses and 30-day access to the CARES Dementia Care for Families program.
