Ask About Other Dementia Topics To Fit Your Needs.


Let Us Come to You: Cost Saving!

Call us and discuss your needs. We conduct face to face interactive training with your employees. This is a fantastic opportunity to instruct many employees at one time in one location.

This is a cost effective way to provide face to face training in your own facility.  From NCCDP inception, employees have continuously reported that the Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia training program was the most comprehensive and dynamic program they have ever attended.

If you are in charge of a conference, this is a fantastic seminar to offer to your participant’s.  Participants who have not attended a past seminar due to travel restrictions and travel cost won’t want to miss this training.


When Should I Schedule a Training?

As soon as you have a specific date. We recommend scheduling a training date (seminar) six months in advance.  If you have an urgent need for training and can not wait, we recommend contacting the NCCDP office directly. The NCCDP Corporate Staff will work with you to arrange a training date that is convenient for your needs. The NCCDP can also conduct weekend trainings.  1 877 729 5191 or e-mail sandra@nccdp.org


What is the class size?

We do not dictate the size of the audience. We recommend that you have a large enough teaching space to comfortably accommodate the audience size. Appropriate teaching space includes tables and chairs. The environment should be noise free and over head paging eliminated during the seminar.  If possible the class room should be located near rest rooms.


What is the cost of On Site Training?

We ask that you contact our corporate office to discuss your needs and the type of training you are interested in.  For the Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Seminar (8 - hour seminar 8:30 to 5:00), each participant receives a hand out notebook.  The seminar is cost effective because there is no class size limit. This saves your organization money when training a large group of employees.  In comparing the cost to send only a few employees to this seminar because of the fees (travel and time away from the job), many companies find this program cost effective.  This is a program that is appropriate for all your staff. Having an on site seminar allows for more of your employees to attend. Additionally, your marketing director may wish to invite guests such as local professionals, Geriatric Care Managers, Social Workers, etc.



How Far in Advance Should I Arrange For Conferences?

Most committees plan a year in advance conference dates, location and speakers. We recommend you contact the corporate office as soon as possible and block your date.   The Corporate Staff or NCCDP approved Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Care Trainer CADDCT can provide the training.  Due to heavy demand for the Corporate Staff, it is strongly recommended that the NCCDP Corporate Staff be contacted as soon as you have a conference date. The list of approved NCCDP instructors is posted on the NCCDP web site.



How Far In Advance Do I Need To Order Notebooks?

The NCCDP can provide you with a master hand out notebook (copy) and the organizer of the event would be responsible for making the copies exactly the way it is provided by the NCCDP. If you prefer, the NCCDP instructor can bring the notebooks to you. Notebooks are to be ordered 3 weeks in advance. Payment is required at the time the notebook order is placed. The notebooks fee is non refundable. At the time of the booking the NCCDP will provide you with the costs of the books and discuss a plan that works best for you.



Where is The Student Notebooks Shipped To?

The notebooks are shipped to the person who organized the event. We can not ship to P.O. Boxes. There must be someone available to sign for the packages.  We do not ship to a conference site. The NCCDP will only ship directly to a facility or business. The NCCDP is not responsible for lost packages.

Conferences: Are the participants provided with hand outs?

Yes. The instructor will provide the conference committee with a master hand out notebook. The Conference Committee is responsible for making the copies. The hand out notebook is in a 3 ring binder with tabs and must be copied and provided to each participant exactly the way it is packaged. The NCCDP instructor does not provide a copy of the over heads / power point presentation as it is copy right protected.  The hand out notebook is very comprehensive, where as the over heads are presented in bullet format and is not detailed as the hand out notebook.

We are often asked, "does the investment my company makes in training all our staff really pay off?" This pretty much sums up how we feel about training and the impact a great training program has on each individual staff member. Sandra Stimson CEO

The Starfish Story

adapted from The Star Thrower
by Loren Eiseley (1907 - 1977)

Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.

He came closer still and called out "Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?"

The young man paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean."

"I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?" asked the somewhat startled wise man.

To this, the young man replied, "The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die."

Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, "But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!"

At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, "It made a difference for that one."
