We are proud to feature the I’M STILL HERE® approach in our memory care program. Through engagement, the I’m Still Here™ approach has been shown to reduce the common symptoms associated with dementia such as anxiety, agitation, aggression, and apathy—the 4 A’s ™—while significantly improving quality of life.
The designation as an I’m Still Here® Center of Excellence is only awarded to a few organizations each year. To achieve this certification, each organization must make a commitment to participate in a rigorous training and implementation program developed by the Hearthstone Institute. As part of this program, all of the staff working in our memory care units as well as many others throughout our community, took part in a six-month onsite program, which included extensive training in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, communication techniques, and life enrichment. This training has created a team of true Dementia Specialists here at Dial, as well as a Dementia Friendly culture throughout our organization.
