Capital Health Care NetworkBeing Dementia Capable to Make the
Joy Rides Possible
There are two types of people in the world, those who would take a dementia patient for a joy ride and those who would say it’s a waste of gas.
Our Dementia Specialty Program is purpose-driven, structured, holistic, visionary and evidence-based. We take the time to get to know our clients in the present and in the past so we can develop holistic plans of care based on our client’s individual values, preferences and priorities. We know that treatment involves the whole person – body, mind, spirit and emotions.
Our Objectives Are:
• To identify the disease-specific needs of individuals and families
• To specify the roles and responsibilities of members of our inter-disciplinary team
• To provide on-going education and integrate best practices in the delivery of care
• To engage in community outreach to help combat misconceptions and the stigma
We begin by screening and selecting experienced caregivers that exemplify qualities like patience, the ability to solve problems, kindness, creative-thinking and respectfulness. We focus on education including Certified Dementia Practitioner training, cultural sensitivity training and other on-going educational opportunities. The success of our program hinges on continuous learning and adaption as the disease progresses.
