Canadian Remote Access for Dementia Learning Experiences (CRADLE)

Canadian Remote Access for Dementia Learning Experiences (CRADLE), funded by the Government of Canada's Future Skills Centre, is a free online course on dementia care, developed for unregulated care providers (e.g., personal support workers and continuing care assistants) across Canada.

CRADLE shares the story of five seniors living with dementia and is being extended to include the story of four additional seniors living with dementia and one of their care partners. Using interactive features and engaging media, it teaches learners practical approaches to real-life solutions.

Unregulated care providers can enrol for CRADLE in English, French, Mandarin and Tagalog free of charge today and will soon be able to complete the course in two Indigenous languages. The course can be completed as an individual or a group in as little as two hours. All those who complete CRADLE will be given a certificate.
