Every new employee at CCNH is required to attend a 4-hour dementia training as part of the 2-day orientation. Some employees are required to attend a yearly 12-hour training. Neither of these is required of our volunteers.
However, if you would like to attend one of these sessions, you are welcome. If you would like to spend a significant amount of your volunteer time being with some of our residents with dementia, then I strongly suggest that you attend.
These are once a month sessions. Let me know if you want to attend, I'll give you more information.
