The International Caregivers Association (ICA) creates and delivers effective caregiving solutions to benefit not only patients, but also families, homecare workers, hospital staff, and long-term care employees. ICA for Alzheimer's and Dementia Caregiving is "source solution" oriented. Physicians, nurses and home healthcare givers gain techniques to improve cooperation, reduce stress, and help build networks. Facility Administrators and Caregivers acquire care solutions to improve quality of life for everyone impacted by dementia, while enhancing operations and reducing costs. Healthcare students benefit from learning techniques and applications that make a meaningful difference. For anyone seeking to learn how to care for or improve the quality of care, ICA provides it -- compassionately around the world day and night with information, tools, and techniques. "Because every human life is sacred, individuals living with Alzheimer’s/dementia must be able to feel safe, retain a sense of independence, be respected and treated ethically." Through online accredited training and ambitious teams around the world in South America, Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and North America, Dr.Ethelle Lord (President of ICA) is promoting a mission doused in her life's passion. Presentations are scheduled at the 24th Annual Conference of Alzheimer's Europe and 9th International Conference on Frontotemporal Dementias. Dr. Lord's realization of the great need for adopting a uniform way of delivering dementia care to professionals and families came through her own caregiving journey. Her husband was diagnosed in January 2003 with Vascular Dementia following a triple bypass surgery. She authored the first Alzheimer’s primer, “How in the World... and Now What Do I Do?” Now, with a pending book release, expanding ICA, plus Remembering 4 You, she joins us to share the far-reaching impact.
