Provider recognized for dementia care
Dementia Care Specialists, a firm based in Milwaukee, has recognized The Arbor Company as a Dementia Capable Society Leader.
The Arbor Company, which is based in Atlanta, operates assisted living and memory care facilities. It expanded its caregiver training program to include webinars and classroom training for memory care. Its residents have a structured guidance and activities program, and families can join an on-site Alzheimer's support group.
The recognition highlights organizations focused on person-centered care for those with dementia. Arbor's Dining with Dignity® program also allows residents flexibility.
“While many organizations are content to prepare caregiver-employees with short, in-service training, The Arbor Company has multiple levels of training accessible to staff and customized to meet the unique needs of the residents in staff members' care,” said Virginia Pflanz, DCS' Director of Sales Operations. “And when company leaders couldn't find one single curriculum that met all their needs, they had it built.”
