Between May 21st 2018 – May 23rd 2018 20 members of the Alaris Health at The Atrium Assisted Living team attended training to better understand how to aide and assist with our residents who suffer from Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
On June 5th, 2018 at 2:30pm members of the Alaris Health at The Atrium team were awarded certificates for completing training and recognized by the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners!
The team was instructed by Billiejean O’Brien RN, MSN, LNHA,N E A – BC, CDP , Trainer NCCDP who stated “By investing in our team’s continued development and education we believe we will continue to offer our residents the best possible opportunity for care and quality outcomes.”
Every element of our care affects the quality of life a resident experiences with us which is why it was of utmost importance to include all departments in our training from environmental services to direct caregivers and administration. The education outlined diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, communication, feelings, depression, repetitive behavior and aggressive behaviors with appropriate de-escalation techniques, activities, environment, staff and family support.
Each of our graduates received a corsage, certificate of completion by the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners along with a lapel pin to wear proudly when caring for our residents.
