Care & Connect Training Centers
Christian Care Communities, Louisville, KY
The development of three Care and Connect Training Centers in Western Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky and Central Kentucky will allow Christian Care Communities (CCC) and their Certified Master Trainers to train church groups and other volunteers on the Best Friends approach to Alzheimer's treatment and new IN2L technology to support cognition and rehabilitation for seniors.
For over 15 years, CCC has used the Best Friends approach to Alzheimer's and dementia care which is an internationally-recognized service and care model for bettering the lives of people with Alzheimer's and other dementias by equipping families, professionals and volunteers with the ability to provide care and support. The IN2L program is dedicated to helping older adults realize the full benefits of today's technology for engagement, cognitive therapy, and interactive recognition exercises.
