The PAC Independent Certified Consultant program is designed for professionals who counsel and advise families working through dementia related challenges. In addition to dementia related awareness and knowledge, learners are taught effective communication techniques, strategies to connect with people in a meaningful way, and methods of providing the right resources at the right time. Upon completion of the on-line videos and assessments (pre-classroom training) and classroom training, learners have eight weeks to complete the remaining requirements to achieve certifcation.
Professionals who may benefit from this training include Geriatric Care Managers, Executive Directors, Marketing Directors, Senior Living Advisors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Stephens Ministers and Elder Law Attorneys.
