ComfortCare Homes provides additional training in Alzheimer’s and dementia treatment to caregivers

ComfortCare Homes is dedicated to providing the highest quality memory care for our Residents in Wichita, KS. We work with seniors and their families to create a plan of care that meets their unique needs and preferences. Part of ensuring that our Residents receive expert care at all times is continuing education for our caregiving staff.

This summer, ComfortCare Homes began a rigorous training program. We partnered with local organizations to provide dementia treatment education. Our caregiving staff had the opportunity to learn about person-centered care and the importance of performing at their best. For more information about our training partners, read our blog “Learning Never Stops: Comfort Care Homes Caregivers Ongoing Education” here.

Why Dementia Treatment Training Is Important

Each member of our caregiving staff is specially chosen and trained to provide compassionate, professional senior care services for our Residents. To ensure that our caregivers continue to perform at their best, ComfortCare Homes has begun a more specialized dementia treatment training program.

These certification courses go above and beyond what is required of caregivers in Wichita, KS. For seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, it is incredibly important for their caregivers to have specialized training. The nature of dementia and memory illnesses is different from other conditions because it causes major behavioral, cognitive, and memory changes.

Caregivers providing dementia care need to be skilled in responding to confused seniors, calming seniors who are agitated, and remaining patient and positive during difficult situations. As medical researchers learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and the causes of these behavioral changes, dementia treatment changes. It is essential that our caregiving staff is up to date on these changes and can implement improvements into the care they provide to our Residents.

Communicating with seniors who have dementia or Alzheimer’s is a required skill for ComfortCare Homes caregivers. Proper dementia treatment encourages non-threatening, calm communication. Often times, trying to ask questions or reason with a confused senior only causes more agitation. Because our caregivers work with Residents every day, they are able to recognize what communication techniques work for each individual senior.

Dementia treatment advancements also help our caregivers prepare for future care. Knowing how degenerative diseases, like Alzheimer’s, progress allows our staff to respond to changes in our Residents’ health. Going beyond the required qualifications allows ComfortCare Homes to provide a standard of care that is above other memory care facilities.
