Trained carepartners are knowledgeable and experienced with dementia and adjust care accordingly. Carepartners are continuously coached, especially when working with more challenging types of dementia.
After an initial assessment, we create a plan of care to help your loved one live comfortably and safely. This positive approach allows carepartners to fill their time together with meaningful activities, increasing the chances of positive interactions. Approaches are altered at each GEM level.
