Laura Ellen Christian
President, AGE-u-cate Training Institute
I have worked in the aging services industry for 18+ years, 17 of those with a top senior living provider supporting development and implementation of engagement programs for seniors as well as creation and oversight of the company's dementia training program. Serving as Senior Vice President of Engagement and Dementia Training, I implemented AGE-u-cate Training Institute programs at over 40 communities and used them routinely as I engaged in staff training and skills coaching at senior living communities with staff, family members and the community at large. Now leading the team at AGE-u-cate, I have extensive "real life" knowledge of leveraging experiential training combined with existing training resources. My education includes a B.S.Ed in Therapeutic Recreation from The University of Georgia. I have also completed training courses through Dementia Capable Care becoming a CPI Dementia Care Behavior Specialist in 2018. I am active as a board member for Dementia Action Alliance and thrilled to support important work of Perfect Pair.
