Gerontology Training Institute
Gerontological Nursing is a new nursing sub specialty in the Philippines.
Gerontological or Geriatric Nurses focus on the wellbeing of older adults, supporting healthy aging, maximize their overall functioning, and increasing the quality of life. The term Gerontological Nursing, which replaced the term Geriatric Nursing in the 1970s, is seen as being more consistent with the specialty’s broader focus on health and wellness, in addition to illness.
While gerontological nursing is taught, trained and practiced in many parts of the world since decades it just recently arrived in the Philippines. As the country is still very young, nursing homes, senior residences and the general geriatric health care have been neglected for a long time and is only slowly developing now.
As we at RainTree want to multiply our knowledge about gerontological nursing we founded our own geriatric training center in the heart of the Central Business District of Makati.
Currently we tach German language and provide intensive geriatric training for our nursing home partners in Germany and will soon add on geriatric courses for caregivers and registered nurses to give a deeper understanding on patients with Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease as well as basic geriatric care knowledge.
Get in touch with us for more information or sign up if you want to be informed about future courses.
