Training & Support

We offer various education and support activities for the staff at businesses that support the senior community.  This includes, but is not limited to, long term care senior living communities, home care agencies, hospice and palliative care organizations.

These activities enable the staff to better help their clients and residents LIVE WELL with purpose, dignity, contentment, and joy.  As well as helping staff with self-care.

These trainings educate employees on dementia or cognitive decline behaviors.  Your employees can use this insight in dealing with customers and clients to provide better customer service and services.  Also, one-third of employees are involved in being a care partner for someone and these tips will help them off the job as well.
