The Center for Caregiver Advancement LogoCenter for Caregiver Advancement 

Center for Caregiver Advancement (CCA) developed a 10-week dementia training program with the UCLA Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program. The curriculum is designed to enhance the skills and knowledge of IHSS caregivers to help them  care for IHSS consumers experiencing symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and related dementia.

CCA is the largest provider of training to long-term care workers in California. They have provided community-based, in-person training to more than 16,000 caregivers and counting in partnership with California health plans, including L.A. Care, Contra Costa Health Plan, and Health Net. In 2012, CCA received a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation Award for a pilot project to recast and enhance the role of home care providers through training and integration into the healthcare system. Evaluation of this pilot found that training is positively associated with cost savings from reduced ER visits and hospitalizations and higher quality care. CCA is dedicated to providing educational opportunities as tools of empowerment for the growing workforce of highly trained caregivers that many Californians can’t live without.
