Pines of Sarasota Education & Training Institute, formerly known as Dementia Care Academy (, is the educational department within not-for-profit Pines of Sarasota Rehabilitation & Senior Care Community.

Worldwide millions of people with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia are experiencing progressive cognitive decline and loss of quality of life. Caregivers, struggling to give their best to help and care for those affected, undergo high levels of stress resulting in increased risk of disease and early death.

We firmly believe that providing caregivers with highly usable, effective hands-on techniques is the key to improving lives – of dementia patients and caregivers alike.

Watch them in the comfort of a your home, office, or classroom, and learn immediately useful skills to offer the best care possible.

That is why Pines of Sarasota Education & Training Institute specializes on offering you the most skill-focused, engaging and easily accessible learning materials possible.
