U-First! is an innovative education program for all members of the care team who are supporting people with behaviour changes due to dementia or other cognitive impairment. This includes health care providers in a direct care role and care partners (family and friends). The U-First! Framework is a person-centred approach to looking at the whole person.

U-First! for Care Partners is a six-hours education program that will help you to build confidence and skills to:
- Enhance your well-being and that of the person you are supporting who is experiencing behaviour changes.
- Reduce responsive behaviours by using the U-First! framework.
- Improve collaboration among all team members through a common knowledge, language and approach to care.

Participants are required to attend all three sessions.
