We are excited to announce that our Elder Care Coordinator, Jennifer Hand, has successfully completed the requirements of the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners (NCCDP) and has earned her professional certification as a Certified Dementia Practitioner! Ms. Hand has completed the required training to earn the CDP designation joining our existing Certified Dementia Practitioners on staff, Anne Markel-Crozier, Claire Merendino, and Katie Knook.
According to the NCCDP, the CDP certification represents that the health care professional has received comprehensive knowledge in the area of dementia, has committed to ongoing professional development, and reflects a deep personal commitment to the quality of life and quality of care of the dementia patient.
Jen answered some questions about her new designation as Certified Dementia Practitioners.
Why did you choose to become a Certified Dementia Practitioner? I completed the CDP certification to compliment the professional credentials and training I have already obtained in my career.
What is the most valuable lesson you learned when you attended the NCCDP Alzheimer’s’ Disease and Dementia Care course? Hearing individual anecdotes and having a real sense of how to act in certain situations.
How will it help our clients and their families? My CDP certification reflects my deep personal commitment and dedication to our clients and families. The certification has inspired my confidence to continue providing quality care and support to individuals living with dementia and their families.
Please join us in congratulating Jen on earning her Certified Dementia Practitioner credentials!
