Gilbert, Arizona (June 2, 2022)–Homecare franchisor SYNERGY HomeCare has announced the launch of a comprehensive new memory care program that combines specialized training for caregivers, engagement tools for clients and family resources and support.
The program reflects A Convergence of Care philosophy underscored by an evidence-based care model that is focused on the individual, not their condition and comes at a time when an estimated 70% of people living with dementia reside at home and about a third of people receiving in-home care are living with dementia.
“Our person-centered approach leverages industry best practices, technology solutions and nationally recognized training standards,” said Rich Paul, chief partnership officer for SYNERGY HomeCare. “It is a way of providing personalized memory care that comes from an understanding of and appreciation for each unique person, fostering normalcy, choice, purpose, belonging and security.”
“The home care industry is facing a growing need for dementia-related care and our new memory care program is designed to help our franchisees and their care teams meet that need,” Paul said.
SYNERGY HomeCare’s memory care program includes:
“As our country matures and the demand for aging resources grows, it is critical that we provide effective guidance across the long-term care continuum. I have dedicated my career to helping families preserve the quality life for those living with dementia as well as their loved ones and have been honored to partner with SYNERGY HomeCare on this important effort,” said Smith.
