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.
