SPARTA, N.J., Feb. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners (NCCDP) recognizes

and honors educators for their incredible achievements and hard work. These superlative individuals' outstanding efforts in meeting the challenging standards for dementia education impact the quality of care in a very positive way. Health care workers
across the United States provide care to our most vulnerable older Americans with a diagnosis of dementia. The educators reached beyond the required minimum state and federal standards for dementia education. Educators work in nursing homes, assisted living communities, home care agencies, hospice agencies, medical adult day care companies, hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, life plan communities (CCRC), psychiatric hospitals, mobile dentistry companies, pharmacy companies, management companies, elder law companies, state and national associations, government agencies, learning institutions and universities. 

Unlike other awards programs, The Educator of The Year Award recognizes the impact the Certified Alzheimer's disease Dementia Care Trainer (CADDCT) has with health care professionals, front line staff and students enrolled in health care related degree programs because NCCDP Alzheimer's disease and Dementia care curriculum motivates them to set higher goals for patient care. Dementia education and the CADDCT educators are extremely important and vital, as Dementia is the leading diagnosis among older Americans not only in this country but in every developed nation. It is important that the people we trust to provide care have a deep understanding of dementia so that they are able to provide competent and compassionate care. The NCCDP 2017 CADDCT Educator of the Year nomination forms can be downloaded at www.nccdp.org and are due no later than March 15th 2017.

NCCDP was formed in 2003 and has thousands of Certified Dementia Practitioners (CDP), 1,000 CADDCT certified trainers, hundreds of Certified Dementia Care Managers (overseeing memory care neighborhoods in skilled nursing homes communities and assisted living communities) and over 100,000 members nationwide and in many countries. NCCDP also offers certification and recognition for memory care neighborhoods who far exceed state and federal regulations, and the certification is called Memory Care Neighborhood Commendation. NCCDP is a global leader in state of the art Alzheimer's disease and Dementia Care curriculum as well as Dementia certification for health care professionals and front line staff.
