Tina Thomas, Williamsburg Landing's Dementia Services Educator, provided a dementia seminar for law enforcement and first responders from local police departments and crisis intervention teams.
In addition, Thomas graduated a new class of Landing staff members, now having trained more than 75 employees as Certified Dementia Practitioners. Staff representing all departments of the Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), including Culinary, Nursing and Environmental Services, are pursuing this higher level of training in dementia care for their residents. Thomas is a certified trainer with the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners.
