A Higher Class of Care for Seniors with Dementia
It’s natural to feel a little uneasy when you forget something. For many, this feeling is fleeting; temporary. However for seniors living with dementia, feelings of uneasiness, uncertainty and anxiety are permanent and often become more intense over time. To ensure that our clients with dementia feel safe in the care of our dementia caregivers, we:
- Screen caregivers for character, not just experience. Dementia patients need to trust those involved with their care. This is why we require our caregivers to pass a psychological examination in addition to a background and reference check. This exam tests for character traits such as honesty and conscientiousness and ensures that our caregivers not only have the skills required for senior care, but the personality needed to be a compassionate caregiver.
- Provide caregivers with continuous education in dementia care. All of our caregivers are provided with additional training in how to care for seniors with dementia. In addition to safe transferring practices and mobility assistance, caregivers learn effective communication skills, how to manage sudden outbursts, and how to identify signs of wandering or sundowning.
- Train caregivers in the Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM). In an effort to promote independence, quality of life and brain health for seniors of all cognition levels, we train all dementia caregivers in CTM. Caregivers engage one-on-one with their client using stimulating games and activities, helping to promote mental acuity and maintain cognitive health longer.
