Why I Walk – Sheryll Lathrop McClenny

Sheryll is a family member of one of our Residents. Read her story to find out why she walks to end Alzheimer’s disease:

I walk for Alzheimer’s for those that can’t.

Our family lost our mother to Alzheimer’s in 2009 after a three year battle. This disease robbed her of dignity and memory.

In 2016 our father, who cared for our beautiful mom with love and kindness till the very end, was diagnosed with this horrible diagnosis. At 92, we watch as we lose him bit by bit and know the outcome.

So I support and walk where they and so many, many others cannot.

How could I not?

Learning Never Stops: Comfort Care Homes Caregivers Ongoing Education

ComfortCare Homes caregivers receive comprehensive senior care training in Wichita, KS

The decision to bring a caregiver into your home or have a senior parent move into an assisted living facility is a challenging task. For families with loved ones suffering from memory illnesses like dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, there are many factors to consider. You want your senior loved one to feel comfortable, supported, safe and happy. Caregivers should be friendly, highly-skilled, and educated in the specialized care needs of seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Why Continuing Education is Important

At Comfort Care Homes, we understand that you and your family want the best care for your senior loved one. While continuing education has been standard practice for our caregivers since the beginning, this year we began a new comprehensive training plan.

Comfort Care Homes partnered with local career training, employee assistance, and senior service organizations to create on-going education opportunities for caregivers. Our staff began this training in August and will continue to develop their skills in the coming year. Not only does improved continuing education enhance care for our Residents, it also shows that we support and believe in our caregiving staff.

Our Training Partners

Advancements in Alzheimer’s and dementia care continue to be made as medical professionals learn more about the signs, symptoms, and triggers of the diseases. Comfort Care Homes provide senior care specifically for those adults with memory care needs. We work with many local and national organizations to ensure our staff is up to date on the latest Alzheimer’s and dementia care techniques.

In August 2017, our staff had the opportunity to learn from a variety of local organizations. The training completed by our care staff surpasses the requirements and expectation of their state certification requirements.

Three of these partners included Allied Health Career Training, LLC, EMPAC, and Senior Care Pharmacy. Each of these groups offers information and resources for our caregivers in Wichita, KS. Our partners presented information and training sessions to our staff, but these organizations can potentially benefit the families of our clients as well.

Visit our Family Resources center to learn more about the support and literature available to family caregivers. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about memory care in Wichita, KS.

Testimonials

I cannot say enough good things about Maurita & Susan (CareGivers) at 219.  They are always caring & cheerful & positive.  They have gone out of their way (I feel above & beyond) to help my aunt adjust to her new home.  They call me at the first sign of any concerns or changes in my aunt.  They treat her as part of their family.  I am very grateful every day that my aunt is in their care.  It is comforting to know she is where she belongs.  I feel like they are a great team!
