Alzheimer’s Association Renews ComForCare’s DementiaWise® Recognition

DETROIT (October 17, 2019) – The Alzheimer’s Association has renewed its recognition of DementiaWise®, a proprietary curriculum of best practices and activities for home caregivers to help care for clients with Alzheimer’s Disease and other types of dementia, created by ComForCare, a premier provider of in-home care. 

The DementiaWise care enhancement program was created to care for people with all types of dementia including Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal dementia and vascular dementia, and consists of a proprietary curriculum that keeps clients calm, engaged, happy and functioning at their best. 

“ComForCare launched DementiaWise nearly six years ago because we saw a real need for our clients to feel supported while living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia,” said Sean Kajcienski, chief operating officer of Best Life Brands. “Having the Alzheimer’s Association recognize DementiaWise is an honor, and a testament that we are providing the best care possible to our clients.”

DementiaWise is recognized by the Alzheimer’s Association for incorporating the evidenced-based Dementia Care Practice Recommendations in the following topic areas: Alzheimer’s and dementia person-centered care, assessment and care planning, activities of daily living, and behaviors and communication.

Q&A with Lori Vrcan, Franchisee of CarePatrol (Franchise Chatter)

Lori Vrcan, Franchisee of Charlotte, South Carolina, previously worked with a national senior living community as a sales and marketing manager. In that position, she was most impressed with her interactions with CarePatrol. Each client referred was pre-qualified and a good fit for the senior living community in terms of needs, budget and personal interests. After she and her husband Todd did further research, they decided not only would buying a CarePatrol franchise be a great investment, but it was a meaningful change and the opportunity to work together and help seniors.

The Cost of Keeping Caregivers and their Clients Safe During a Pandemic

According to the CDC, the risk for severe illness from COVID-19 among adults increases with age, with older adults at highest risk. That makes the health and safety of the caregivers who look after them all the more important. And it is the responsibility of those employing the caregivers to ensure they have the resources to do their job safely.

When COVID-19 started to infiltrate the U.S, we were faced with the same questions so many businesses were forced to address: How do we keep our team and our customers safe? And how do we continue operating to meet demand? The answer that was never in our playbook was to change our whole business model. And we had to do it quickly.
