On the Path to Becoming Certified Dementia Practitioners

On the Path to Becoming Certified Dementia Practitioners

Regional Director of Programming Jennifer Petrenko conducted a class at the home office on Thursday, July 19, for 27 associates working toward adding “CDP” after their names. The class is one of the requirements for becoming a Certified Dementia Practitioner through the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners (NCCDP). In addition to encouraging associates to become certified, Benchmark picks up the cost of the certification training, which individually would cost $225. “Personal growth is highly valued at Benchmark,” Jennifer says, “and having well-trained associates in roles from programming to nursing to memory care director is vital to creating quality experiences for our residents and their families.”

Congratulations to these dedicated associates for completing the July 19 class:
