Interim HealthCare’s dementia program is designed to address the specific needs and concerns of dementia patients and their families through every stage of dementia. Our goal: To help individuals with dementia live safely and comfortably, with meaning and dignity, and provide families with much-needed support and peace of mind.
In order to provide the most supportive environment possible, certification in the Teepa Snow Positive Approach® to Care philosophy is offered to our caregivers and clinicians so they can leverage specialized training techniques in order to implement the complex care that’s needed. The approach emphasizes what patients can do instead of what they can’t. As part of their PAC training, our personal care and support services professionals are taught to encourage customized daily activities — often inspired by former hobbies and interests — that deliver meaning, provide a sense of accomplishment and spark moments of joy.
As dementia progresses, we pledge to preserve dignity and provide comfort while meeting evolving needs with skill, patience and compassion. Our care is tailored to each stage of brain change according to the GEMS® dementia classification model so we can meet people where they are on their dementia pathway and adjust activities and interactions based on their current abilities, as well as the challenges they’re facing. Some of the challenges our professionals are trained to address include:
