Educational Workshops & Trainings

Whether you’ve worked in dementia care for decades, are looking to make a career change, or an emerging professional, AFA’s educational workshops and professional trainings will help you to develop the expertise and skills needed to be the best dementia care partner you can be.

During the workshops and trainings, AFA facilitators utilize case studies, role play, and experiential activities to ensure full understanding of content. Workshops and trainings can be customized to meet needs of your organization or care team. Workshops are ideal for professional schools (e.g., nursing, social work), hospitals, home care agencies, residential care facilities, retail stores and a variety of other settings. Want to host a training? Contact AFA’s Department of Educational and Social Services at 866-232-8484 or send an email.

Trainings are also available where licensed social workers can earn continuing education hours. AFA is an approved provider of continuing education hours for licensed social workers by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), the New York State Education Department’s State Board of Social Work and the Association of Social Work Boards-New Jersey.
