The Copper Ridge Institute
The Copper Ridge Institute is a leader in quality dementia care research and education aiming to improve the quality of life for patients and families with Alzheimer's disease and other memory impairing disorders. Everyone associated with long-term care today is familiar with the impact that longer life spans are having on health care systems around the world. Along with the staggering numbers of patients with cognitive impairments, health care professionals are confronted with caring for patients with Alzheimer's disease and other memory impairing illnesses. These two factors bring challenges not faced before, and there are very few proven methods of care and treatment.
Developing evidence based care methods, advancing research in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, and teaching this new knowledge is the work of The Copper Ridge Institute. Astute has partnered with The Copper Ridge Institute to deliver this critically needed training to both professionals and home caregivers.
