Our Alzheimer's and Dementia Care Staff
ComfortCare Homes® employs qualified staff to meet the needs of our Residents. From our nursing team to the CareGivers that provide all the daily care, we have an amazing team to care for your loved-one.
We employ both Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) and Registered Nurses (RNs). These professionals often play the role of Home Supervisors, managing the care of Residents in the home.
The majority of our CareGivers are Certified Medication Aides (CMAs); however, we do hire Certified Nursing Aides (CNAs) when appropriate. The CareGivers in our Home are considered “universal caregivers” and tend to the daily care of our Residents. This includes: assistance with a Residents’ ADLs (Activities of Daily Living), cooking meals, daily socialization and activities, etc.
Our CareGivers are the heart and soul of the Home.
Additional Skilled Care
Additional skilled care is provided through our local Caring Partnerships. We work closely with various hospice, home health and other health care providers to bring as many services to the Resident as possible.
Higher staff to Resident ratio
Unfortunately, most memory care units in nursing homes aren't able to provide enough assistance for someone with dementia, because the staff is spread between a large group of patients. The fact is, most dementia sufferers don’t need clinical care or the strict scheduling regimen followed by larger facilities.
We offer a higher ratio of certified staff to Residents than you will find in larger institutional nursing facilities or assisted living centers. Our dedicated Care Team consists of a well-trained and compassionate staff of CareGivers. This means your loved one will become familiar with their CareGivers and foster close bonds, rather than being cared for by a staff that changes every few hours.
