Dementia Program Consulting Services

What are the characteristics of a five-star dementia care organization? Are there leadership models and standards of practice that can be adapted to fit your organization?


Dementia care providers face many of the same challenges as other healthcare providers as well as a new level of public scrutiny and accountability. We need to ensure that our standards of practice meet or exceed the quality indicators defined by state and federal agencies. We need to invest in our workforce to retain current staff and attract a pool of qualified potential employees. And, we need to assess market trends that will have a significant impact on our organization and the people we serve as we plan for the future.


Through the consultative process, we can help your organization to meet these challenges and to respond faster and more effectively to the changing culture of dementia care. Whether you need to re-design your dementia care program, start a new program, or open a new facility, our consulting services are based on 20 years of dementia-specific experience, and we can help you “design for success” using proven approaches and the latest techniques.


Our nationally recognized “best practice” standards of dementia care will help you to construct models of care that demonstrate quality outcomes for all stages of Alzheimer’s disease and all types of care.
• We will evaluate your dementia care program and work with you to introduce changes that will produce positive resident health outcomes and high quality care at all levels;

• We will help you to create a positive atmosphere among residents and staff by focusing on listening, problem-solving, reducing stress and encouraging independence, and reduce your use of locks, physical restrictions and psychotropic medications;

• We will evaluate the physical design of your dementia care setting and help you to create an environment that promotes a calm and soothing ambiance and that promotes social connection between frontline care providers and residents;

• We will share our techniques for staff education, training and recognition that will empower them to be better care providers and that improve their job satisfaction and the organization’s staff retention levels;
