“When caregivers are trained in how to provide care, patients have a better quality of life, are more functional and stay healthier for longer.” Costantinos Lyketsos

Caring for someone with dementia is a full-time job. With a cure unfortunately still far away, a caregiver’s only tool is a valid and timely training to be able to interpret, understand and manage each new challenge.

With this in mind, the Hellenic Initiative Against Alzheimer’s Disease (HIAAD) and the Metropolitan College, have collaborated and designed a training program for the best possible care of people with dementia. The program includes the best practices worldwide and was designed by Johns Hopkins’  Precision Medicine Center of Excellence in Alzheimer’s Disease, Dr. Costantinos Lyketsos and the team of Andrea Nelson, Director of Memory Care Programs at the Memory and Alzheimer’s Treatment Center at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

The educational material of the program is adapted to the Greek culture of care, in order to fully meet the needs of Greek caregivers. It covers both main categories of caregivers: Healthcare Professionals who are interested in acquiring specialized knowledge and family members who provide care for a relative.
