CARES® Dementia Specialist Credential - Professional Development for Millennial Workers

Dave Kyllo

A full 87 percent of millennials -- those born between 1980 and 1996 -- say professional development and career growth are very important to them in a job, according to Gallup research. The CARES Dementia Specialist (C.D.S.) training curriculum is a perfect fit for meeting those professional development expectations. 

Assisted living and nursing facility staff can grow their skill sets and get recognized for successfully completing the entire HealthCare Interactive CARES online dementia care training curriculum (6 courses/32 modules) by earning the C.D.S. credential.  

By completing all training programs, submitting 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 names, on resumes, or on business cards. They also will be placed on a national registry of people who earn and hold a current C.D.S. credential.

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