Alzheimer's Foundation of America Awards Excellence in Dementia Care Status to First Adult Day Center, More Long-Term Care Settings
Date:12/19/2007

prehensive program with input from the Avila Institute of Gerontology, an AFA member organization, as well as other AFA member agencies, national organizations and industry experts.

In addition to the current Excellence in Care settings, other facilities nationwide are in various stages of the evaluation process.

AFA's 50 Excellence in Care specialists in various regions conduct on-site evaluations, consult and make recommendations to comply with the standards, and work side-by-side with facilities on an ongoing basis to improve performance and best practices. The evaluation includes assessing a setting's physical environment, safety procedures, program activities, staff-client interaction, and dementia care training for staff and families.

For the Salvation Army Serendipity Adult Day Center, which offers meaningful activities daily to about 30 adults with special needs, "The Excellence in Care Dementia Program of Distinction validates what I feel is the culmination of years of hard work constantly trying to be on the cutting edge of new and innovative ideas in working with individuals who live with dementia and their families," said Jesalyn Stanton, the center's executive director.

"This certification is also an affirmation to our families that they are receiving the best of care for their loved one," she added.

Jackie Schwab, The Birches' director of the facility's Encore memory care unit, is also proud to receive the distinction.

"We educate ourselves in as many things that are offered out there to create the best place for our residents. We call the things we learn 'tools' in our toolbox of care," she said. "The Excellence in Care is important because we have added another very useful 'tool' to our box."
