Via Zoom teleconference: Free family and professional caregiver training opportunity

Bravo Zulu: Achieving Excellence in Relationship-Centered Dementia Care

Presented by Jennifer Carson, PhD, Director, Dementia Engagement, Education and Research Program, School of Community Health Sciences, University of Nevada, Reno

This four-part workshop explores what it takes to get to Bravo Zulu* by providing dementia care and support that is tailored, yet flexible, to each unique elder's strengths, preferences and needs.

This program also has a component that speaks to military service and its impact on the aging process.

Special notice: Due to our concern for the health and well-being of our community (patients, care partners, community professionals, team members, etc.), the Sanford Center for Aging (SCA) has decided to suspend in-person trainings and meetings for this fiscal year. Therefore, we will only provide our trainings via Zoom interactive video technology.

Training dates

The fall dates for Bravo Zulu training are full. New spring dates will be posted soon - please check back in September for an update.

Stay healthy and take care. We look forward to seeing you on Zoom soon!

*Bravo Zulu originated as a naval signal, typically conveyed by flag-hoist or radio, meaning "Well done!" Since its origin, Bravo Zulu has been used by senior U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Coast Guard officers to congratulate or compliment their crews or commands for outstanding performance! Learn how you can get to Bravo Zulu in dementia care and support.
