Staff

All staff in the Memory Support program are carefully selected. We look at the essence of the potential staff member. We look for compassion. Through many years of experience we have developed continual staff training programs. It is important for staff to understand dementia. Staff are mentored by supervisors to deal with dementia behaviors in a manner that helps reduce agitation and anxiety. There is a daily briefing between shifts. This means incoming staff learns about any special issues a resident is having.

 

Family Support

We believe the family needs sustenance in dealing with the issues of dementia too. A regular support group is an integral part of our memory loss program.
