Abstract

Foundations of Dementia Care is the evidence-based training curriculum developed as a key component of the Alzheimer's Association's Campaign for Quality Residential Care, a comprehensive and multifaceted initiative with the goal of enhancing the lives of residents with dementia. This article discusses the development of this national dementia care training program, including the process of formation, curriculum design, conceptual influences, and tools for delivery. It also introduces the 4-state, control-designed evaluation research study conducted by researchers at the University of North Carolina and Duke University to assess the impact of the program.
