Realized by Trained Caregivers
The rise in the aging population combined with greater diagnostic tools prompted the U.S. to pass the National Alzheimer’s Project Act in 2012. The key goal of the act was to create a national plan to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Studies show the importance of training caregivers in minimizing verbal and physical aggression, wandering, and depression. The active controls of trained caregivers improved outcomes for adults with the dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
Quality Care for Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Residents living with dementia or a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s require caregivers with specialty training. Trinity Healthcare provides the OHFLAC training to team members to deliver better care. Caregivers in the residential setting benefit from exposure to the types of physical difficulties older adults experience. Sustained levels of daily confusion often result in challenging and changing behaviors. Being sensitive to these variations through professional training gives caregivers added insight and effectiveness.
