Comfort as the New Medicine” Comes to San Diego on July 24

CANHR is pleased to co-sponsor a full-day dementia care training in San Diego on July 24. The event will be led by Tena Alonzo, the fantastic comfort care teacher from the Beatitudes Campus in Phoenix, AZ, and Martha Ranon from the Southern Caregiver Resource Center. The event’s other co-sponsors are Elder Law & Advocacy, Southern Caregiver Resource Center, and the State Office of the Long-Term Care Ombudsman. The training is meant to be an implementation follow-up to the CANHR co-sponsored dementia care conference that was held in San Diego in June 2012. The trainers will use real-life case studies and focus on the day-to-day use of comfort care principles in lieu of chemical restraints to take care of the needs of people with dementia. Lunch and CEUs will be provided. The cost of the event is only $25. To register, call (858) 565-1392.
