Driving & Dementia - Dementia Care Certificate


Course Description

Driving is deeply connected to our independence, our enjoyment of life, and our identity as productive, responsible members of society. It is hard to sit still when someone questions our driving ability. As dementia progresses, driving can become impaired, and tough conversations and decisions must happen. Learn the common warning signs of driving impairment, what a professional's obligations to the patient and the community to report impaired driving is, how to help patients transition from driver to passenger and common family dynamic issues. Recommendation: take CES 4303 Fundamentals of Dementia Care first. This class is an elective to complete the certificate. This class is approved for 2 continuing education contacts hours for nurses by Schoolcraft College, 2 continuing education contact hours for social workers by the Michigan Social Work Continuing Education Collaborative and 0.2 CEUs for other professionals.
