U-First!® supports health care and other service providers who work with people living with dementia or other cognitive impairments.  U-First!® builds on existing curriculum and encourages learners to make lifelong learning a goal.  The vision is to provide every member of the care team with consistent education on key skills and best care practices.  It sets the stage for common knowledge, language for communicating with all members of the care team (including informal care partners), and a comprehensive approach to care.
