Perry Foundation Academy of Health

The Perry Foundation Academy of Health is dedicated to providing superior quality programs, ensuring learners are equipped to meet the needs of the workforce through student-centered education and training. Utilizing a person-centered care approach, our academy will provide the tools needed for students’ personal fulfillment with appreciation for their dignity of work.

Population(s) Served

Through a grant provided by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, we are launching the Nevada Music & Memory Initiative based on the Music & Memory program and inspired by the documentary film, Alive Inside. The goal of this initiative is to enhance the quality of life for Nevada nursing home residents living with Alzheimer’s and other dementia related diseases while reducing the use of anti-psychotic medications.

The Perry Foundation provides free, evidence-based education to caregivers and healthcare professionals in Nevada’s Nursing Facilities and Assisted Living Communities with the mission of improving the quality of care for our loved ones within these communities.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

As a Nurse Assistant Training Program focused on long-term care, we are able to train CNAs to work specifically with our most vulnerable population.

1. Writing a curriculum specific to the long-term care industry.
2. Sourcing those that are passionate about caregiving and the elderly and transitioning them into the proper career.
3. Being an advocate for long-term care and evidence-based education.

We have a team of highly training and motivated nurses and other professionals, dedicated to the success of the industry and the rights of those living in long-term care communities.

We have established ourselves as the leader in quality nurse assistant training, established contracts with UNLV, the Nevada Department of Veteran Services, and NVHOPES. We have expanded with a physical office and training center in Reno, Nevada and are moving into a new location in Henderson, triple the size of our current location.
