DSS Announces Fall Training Series

The Department of Social Services (DSS) recently distributed an announcement for the “Fall 2012 Training Series” for assisted living providers offered by the DSS and the Virginia Commonwealth University Department of Gerontology.  The brochure is available on-line.  Current training opportunities will focus on the Individualized Service Plan: Meeting Resident/Participant Needs, Person-Centered Caring and Agitation and Aggression.  Please note that registration and payment for the class is required 10 business days before the training date.   If payment is not received 10 business days before the class, the registration will be canceled.   Additionally, if an adequate number of class registrations are not received, they reserve the right to cancel the class.   Since spaces fill so quickly providers are encouraged to register early for the classes.  Payment may be made for the training with a credit card.
