As a holistic Dementia Care solutions Expert, I believe in infusing non-pharma interventions into our care efforts for those we’re serving.
The four pillars that guide my philosophy are: Environment, Communication, Nutrition, and Engagement.
It’s my belief, that by paying close attention to these four areas as a first line of defense, we’ll have higher impact outcomes for those in our care.
Throughout my 20 years in professional Dementia operations, I’ve got hundreds of examples wherein I was called in to diffuse a Dementia caregiving situation that was going sideways. Often, by examining (and tweaking) either one or more of those four pillars, we eliminated the ‘trigger’ that was causing the issue.
An over-stimulating care environment that is too warm or cold with loud/noisy distractions (often overlapping) combined with improper communication techniques and topped off with food that isn’t ‘Dementia friendly’ is a recipe for disaster. These disruptions (when not addressed) can negatively impact any/all interactions between the caregiver and the care receiver.
In this clip, I’m sharing with the professional Senior Living leaders, how we can support those in our care through Adaptive Food Options for mealtime success!
**SPOILER ALERT** I give a direct ‘tip’ to your SALES TEAM MEMBERS!
Owners, Operators, and Managers in the Senior Living space – it’s this level of ‘attention to detail’ that is required by your teams, to achieve Championship Level Dementia care success!
