  • Duration of training: 1 full day is recommended, but options may be available for half-day sessions or 2-day sessions, depending on your interests, needs, and staff scheduling
  • Date(s): You let us know the day(s) on which you would like the training delivered, and we’ll check for trainer availability and confirm arrangements with you
  • Location: You provide an appropriate venue for the training (e.g., a conference room at your facility, a meeting room at a community location, or a local hotel); meeting room costs are your responsibility

Trainer Selection:

Your trainer will be an expert in the Best Friends™ approach, often one of the developers/authors of Best Friends™ products, or an individual identified as an Expert Leader for Master Training in the Best Friends™ approach to dementia care.
