Hi Maria! I have a Master’s in Gerontology, but honestly, I focused my studies in grad school specifically in dementia. I did internships that would give me hands-on knowledge, and I read a lot. Do yourself a favor and don’t pay for a certification, just read. Read “The 36-Hour Day,” my blog, The Alzheimer’s Reading Room website, and my book when it comes out. You’ll save money and you’ll learn at your own pace!
