What is this? Put simply, it is an online dementia education platform for companies who need dementia care staff training. (So...everyone.)


The one thing that I keep running into while working with senior living organizations is this: although they all have different needs and programs, they ALL need staff training. Some communities I talk to turned to Relias for their online dementia training, but find it lacking in scope. Others build their own trainings in Powerpoint or on their bulky, confusing HR platforms...and then realize that these fun-bereft slideshows don't get the job done. So, I started thinking, "What if we...tried something different?"

Hi, I’m Rachael Wonderlin


And I think the old way we teach dementia care is outdated! Isn't it time we ACTUALLY had an online platform where your staff could learn on their own time? You know, instead of being shuttled through a 2-hour dementia care course the first time they walk through your door?

I have a Master's in Gerontology and am the author of 3(!) books with Johns Hopkins University Press. At my consulting agency, Dementia By Day, I work with senior living companies who want to up their dementia care game. I'd love to help you do exactly that.

Let's change the way we teach dementia care.

What do you get with this course?


  • 1 full year of dementia education for ALL OF YOUR STAFF
  • Live, monthly Dementia Detective coaching calls with me directly

FAQs


Couldn't we just keep using that old dementia care DVD we have?

I mean...I guess so?


We use a program that our old HR Director built.

Ohhhhhhkay...


We have Relias, so, we're good.

I know, I know, they have a dementia care class. But, I'm the only person who teaches Embracing Their Reality(TM) and explains dementia care the way that I do. I'm all about the tangible tips and advice, and I think this is something you should know about, too!


Can you just build this on our platform so we can use it from there?

Yes, technically, I can. Let's talk about what that looks like. Although, I must tell you, using it on here is a LOT more cost effective for you in the long run: that's why I built this!
