Becoming an Alzheimer’s Whisperer
ACM Home Health is proud to provide a comprehensive and effective Alzheimer’s and Dementia Home Care Program. Becoming an Alzheimer’s Whisperer is a unique and effective approach to help support those affected by Dementia. The program focuses on more than nursing. Several types of caregivers come together in this program to provide the best care for patients and support for their families while allowing them to spend more time in their homes. In addition to Registered Nurses, out team also brings in a multidisciplinary team of Occupational and Physical Therapists, home health aides, and Speech Therapists to develop an understanding of how the disease is progressing on an individual level, so that friends and family have as many tools as possible when providing necessary care.
Through this unique approach, we are able to help address:
- Agitation & Aggression
- Resistance to Care
- Issues surrounding Activities of Daily Living
- Fall Prevention
- Management and Adherence of Medication
- Other Dementia and related behaviors
Becoming an Alzheimer’s Whisperer is a national program developed by Dr. Verona Carson, APRN/PMH and has been recognized by the American Psychiatric Nurses Association as Best Practices in Dementia Care. Employees at ACM Home Health are extensively trained by C&V Senior Care Specialists, Inc. in the Becoming an Alzheimer’s Whisperer Program.
