Core Principles Guide Our Memory Care Program
Most importantly, when it comes to caring for their loved one, our families are in charge. We do as much or as little as they prefer. Our caregivers are certified Dementia Care Specialists, trained in communication and behavioral strategies.
We use our client’s background and personal interests to create their care plan. We strive for a clear, accurate understanding of our client’s abilities, tastes, interests, values and spiritual beliefs. We then combine these elements to provide customized care.
During the initial meeting, we will help you identify what type of care you need and assist you in choosing the right person for your needs. Our customized care plans are developed according to each client’s specific needs. We assess each client’s individual wishes, desires, and abilities to determine a care plan that serves the client’s needs.
Our goal is to provide top-quality in-home care for seniors with dementia to help our clients live out their golden years at home.
