With Dementia, Knowledge is Power

At Regency Post-Acute, Nursing and Rehab Centers, we specialize in the care of our residents who suffer from Dementia.

When our Admissions Departments tour with families of Demetia sufferers, we are always careful to articulate our strengths in this area, where we are unparalleled.

I try to do allot of research on the topic of Dementia, because there are so many variations, subsets and derivatives and the term today is far too broad to encompass any one definition.

In fact, new federal and state standards are being instituted as governing bodies begin to recognize the importance of special training in the area of dementia.

In this vein, I have consistently enjoyed the articulate, well written and informative articles by Sandra Stimson, CADDCT, CALA, ADC, AC-BC, CDP, CDCM, executive director of the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners (NCCDP) and the International Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners (ICCDP).

I’ve actually started to periodically ‘Google’ her to see whether she has any new offerings to empower and educate.

Dementia, is an ever evolving disease and Healthcare professionals and providers need to be current and up to date with their knowledge base and protocols.

Regency Nursing Centers are constantly engaged in ongoing education in this –¬†and other important areas.
