Over 5.8 million Americans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. This number does not include those not formally diagnosed or other forms of Dementia. With the continued increase of aging individuals, the amount of those diagnosed with some form of dementia will continue to increase.

Care Assurance believes in supporting senior care providers with education and tools to be most successful in providing the best care and service to those that depend on them.

Care Assurance is pleased to announce the release of their dementia care program "Joining the Journey: Dementia Care Training for Providers". This training will address the various types of dementia, care and communication techniques, programming and much more. This program will allow providers to have a firm, structured program to train their team and support families and clients as they go through the journey of dementia care.

Care Assurance has partnered with a leading programming and activities partner that specializes in memory care programming needs: Brainy Day Activity Program by HippoCampus Headquarters.

Walk to End Alzheimer's | Alzheimer's Association

Hello Metro Atlanta folks! Have you registered for the 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer's?

Wondering why this cause is important? Here are some facts:

1). Over 5 million Americans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. (This does NOT include the other forms of dementia).

2). Between the year 2000 - 2017 deaths related to Alzheimer's Disease has increased by 145 percent.

3). In the United States, someone develops Alzheimer's Disease every 65 seconds.

4). Within the state of Georgia alone, we are home to over 100,000 individuals that have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease.

The walk is imperative, not only does it bring awareness to this incurable disease but it provides funding for research, education and most of all caregiver resources and support.

Dementia touches us all. In 2011 I lost my mom to Vascular Dementia, she was 58 years old. She has 3 grandchildren that do not know her because this disease robbed her of her precious life. I walk for her.

Please join me on Saturday, September 28th from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. at The Battery at SunTrust Park 800 Battery Ave Atlanta, GA.

Register today for this event, create a team and get involved. Whether you sign up independently, as a group or a business, we would love for you to join us. As you sign up, please comment below and let me know who you walk for!

Caregiver Retention 101: Training Your Team for Success!

The senior care business faces the continuous challenges of sourcing quality employees and retaining those employees. Staff retention starts during the hiring and on-boarding process.

Regardless of the employees experience, all staff can benefit from training from your organization especially regarding agency specific policies and practIces.

Here is a list of suggested training topics especually beneficial for your caregiving staff. This list is not all inclusive but a suggested start list. If your state provides a specified list of trainings, please follow those required trainings.

1). Client Rights
2). Basic Alzheimer’s & Dementia Training
3). Observing & Report Client Change in Condition
4). Basic Nutrition
5). Fall Prevention
6). Home Safety
7). Infection Contol
8). Job Specific Policies (Companion care services, Personal care services)
9). Overview of Agency Specific policies (payroll, reporting problems, communicable diseas reporting, state specific regulations that pertain to the agency and their role with your company).
