Tabitha Keeps Bar High in Caring for Memory Support Clients
Date:6/13/2013

Lincoln, NE (PRWEB) June 13, 2013

Tabitha, your answer for Elder Care, continues to raise the standard in memory care support, this time with a significant investment in team member training to enhance the dignity and well-being of Elders experiencing memory loss.

More than 125 care staff from six different Tabitha service lines, including skilled nursing, assisted living and home care, became certified dementia practitioners this spring through the organization-wide educational effort.

“When 80 percent of older adults experience some form of memory loss, it becomes an issue we just can’t ignore,” said Jeremy Hohlen, Tabitha vice president of operations. “The more team members who are certified in caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia ultimately means the best care and outcomes for our clients and their families.”

With certification through the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners, the designation denotes an individual’s education and training by memory care experts to understand and put into practice the most appropriate activities, psychosocial support, care and comfort measures for individuals and families experiencing dementia at any stage.

Tabitha caregivers who earned the certification represented Tabitha Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Tabitha Home Health Care and in-home support, Tabitha of Crete and Garden Square Assisted Living of Crete, and the organization’s leading memory support community, GracePointe Assisted Living & Memory Care Suites. Among the GracePointe team members trained were its director of nursing and director of resident services. Ongoing monthly training will be provided for caregivers by Tabitha in an effort to continually raise the standard in Elder Care memory support.

As a nonprofit organization serving 28 Nebraska counties, Tabitha’s love embraces a society where everyone is valued and empowered to live life to the fullest, with compassionate at-home support, innovative living communities, exceptional rehabilitation, health care and hospice services.
