Distinctive Care Geriatric Care Management recently received accreditation to offer continuing education units for nurses, certified assisted living administrators and licensed nursing home administrators in Bergen and Rockland Counties. The courses are either 1.5 or 2.0 credits and the topics include Navigating the Elder Care Continuum which covers the importance of eldercare planning and The Turning Point, which evaluates housing options and how to make the decision regarding nursing home placement. Other topics offered are The Elderly, Depression and Suicide; The Fears, Angst of Incontinence in the Elderly; and Exercise and Physical Fitness in the Elderly. Social work credits have been applied for these courses and Distinctive Care hopes to offer these credits in the second quarter of 2010. Courses are taught by the nurses/geriatric care managers at Distinctive Care in Ridgewood, NJ. These courses are available for presentation in any facility where the courses might be of benefit to those who are caring for the elderly.
