LOOK what are people saying about GPA…

I learned many beneficial facts and solutions to potential and current obstacles in my job. It [GPA curriculum] is necessary for all staff interacting with [clients] living with dementia.”

“No matter which area one works in, 95% of this course could be, not only useful, but relevant to daily care.”

I found this very helpful, I could see the staff enjoyed this and gained knowledge that will better allow them to take care of [clients] not only in the secured area but within the whole facility.”
