The Center for Aging & Disability Education & Research (CADER) is dedicated to strengthening the workforce that provides health and long-term supports and services to older adults and people with disabilities.

The rapid aging of our population and a changing landscape for health and social services demand that organizations in the aging and disability field provide integrated, interprofessional, and person-centered care. CADER is a national leader in helping organizations and the workforce meet this challenge by leveraging the latest in online learning technology and the extensive resources of one of the nation’s leading research universities.

As the primary training and research arm of The Network, CADER has worked with a variety of training partners include Area Agencies on Aging, State Units on Aging, Independent Living Centers, senior centers, housing providers, behavioral health organizations, nursing homes, assisted living centers, hospitals, community health centers, social service agencies, and adult day health centers.

Our employees have diverse educational backgrounds and work histories. We have found the CADER courses and certificate programs to be a convenient and cost-effective method to ensure that our staff have a sound understanding of the issues and concerns impacting the consumers we serve and gives them the knowledge they need to provide effective care planning and coordination.
