Certified Parkinson Disease Care™
Facility Accreditation

People with Parkinson's Disease seek care from facilities that demonstrate a commitment to staff who have proven expertise in all service areas.

Certified Parkinson Disease Care™ (CPDC™) accreditation offered by the PMD Alliance provides that assurance. The following underscores the importance of a workforce that is prepared to meet an individual’s unique needs: 

  • PD is neurological and progressive; over time it affects almost every aspect of motor and non-motor functions – physical, emotional, cognitive.
  • Nearly one million people in the US (1 in a hundred over the age of 60) are living with PD. The number is projected to double over the next 20 years.
  • People are living for decades with the disease, even as they require increasing care.
  • Many of these individuals and their spouses seek residential and long-term care during the course of the disease. 

PARKINSON’S IS A COMPLICATED DISEASE. Excellence in daily care requires knowledge and training at every level of staffing – clinical staff, caregivers, dietary workers, housekeeping, facility operations, and administration. 

CPDC™ is interactive, convenient, and comprehensive

Interactive: Training sessions are hosted online, live. Our expert trainers can answer questions specific to each facility, and each individual employee as they arise. 

Convenient: Training sessions are online offered on various days and times throughout the month to more easily accommodate staff schedules attendance. All you need is an internet connection! 

Comprehensive: To be certified, a minimum of 80% of all staff members, including 100% of staff in leadership positions must attend the training sessions. Training includes information about the disease, helpful discussion of its many symptoms, and suggestions to enhance daily care. 

Ongoing: New employees have access to join online training sessions as they are hired. Many facilities have made our sessions part of their new hire orientation process!
