Aside from putting the care for persons with dementia at heart, IDCA works to open the best opportunities for its graduates. IDCA provides two relevant Foreign Language Programs to help its graduates grow in their career in foreign lands.

Dementia Care Course

This course prepares careworkers to have a deeper knowledge on dementia and the professional skills to be able to give a holistic, comprehensive, and patient-centered  care. The primary training objective is to develop competencies in assessment, communication, health-care planning, providing care and responding to special needs of the elderly with dementia.  

IDCA and its faculty actively collaborate with other institutions for research on the areas of epidemiology, non-pharmacologic interventions and cultural ecology of dementia care. The faculty are active participants in the Marikina Memory and Aging Project, a cohort of community dwelling elderly in Marikina City that is being followed up for various health and aging related issues.
