AFA recognizes that as number of individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease continues to grow, so too does the need for dementia-specific training of our nation’s healthcare professionals. Achieving a nationwide culture of dementia care that is high-quality, empathetic, and person-centered demands that, as professionals, we continuously pursue opportunities to learn and grow.
