Project ECHO is a groundbreaking collaboration of LeadingAge Foundation members and the National Alzheimer’s Association

Sholom, Minneapolis and St. Paul, has been awarded participation in Project ECHO by the LeadingAge Minnesota Foundation in a groundbreaking collaboration of assisted care members with the National Alzheimer’s Association in patient-centered dementia care training.

Sholom’s participation in the staff training begins January 1, 2020. Project ECHO is a unique distance learning training tool in a proven training format. Tele-ECHO offers winning member teams access to patient-centered dementia care training  based on the Alzheimer’s Association Dementia Care Practice recommendations.  Expert faculty and leading researchers will offer a six-month program in 12 modules. 

The training program brings staff together in one location for optimal discussion and participation in the tele-ECHO conferences. The inclusive training includes topics such as detection and diagnosis, assessment and care planning, medical management and transitional care. 

Sholom’s commitment to training compassionate health care staff in skilled dementia and patient-centered care is demonstrated by its ongoing training and skilled staff. In 2019 Sholom was awarded a Home and Community-Based Scholarships Grant for dementia care instructor training. Sholom  services include adult day care programs, residential independent and assisted living, 5-Star-awarded nursing care and memory care.
