The National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners (NCCDP) is aware of the particular difficulties correctional institutions have while trying to care for people who have Alzheimer’s and dementia. We are dedicated to raising the standard of Alzheimer’s and related dementia care in all fields;  This includes the criminal justice system, where specific education and certification are becoming more and more important.

Given the aging demographic of people incarcerated, it is critical that correctional staff members possess the knowledge and abilities necessary to properly treat Alzheimer’s and dementia. Our goal is to close the care gap by providing education and empathy-driven methods through our Dementia Care Education and Certification for the correctional industry.


About the Correctional Industry

An aging prison population with an increasing incidence of Alzheimer’s and dementia and accompanying cognitive impairments presents an unprecedented challenge to the correctional business. This change necessitates a review of the assistance and care offered by these establishments. There is a greater chance of injury, misinterpretation, and neglect since traditional correctional procedures are not built to address the specific requirements of prisoners living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Effective management and treatment are essential for preserving safety, dignity, and quality of life because the atmosphere in correctional facilities can aggravate Alzheimer’s and dementia symptoms. Realizing this, it becomes imperative to implement specific Alzheimer’s and dementia care procedures designed to meet the particular requirements and limitations of the custodial environment.
