Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s, and related dementia, requires a special person that understands their needs. Bartley Healthcare is empowering caregivers through advanced education called CARES.  CARES stands for Connect with the person, Assess behavior, Respond appropriately, Evaluate what works, and Share with others. Together, these actions empower caregivers and allows them to always improve at their job. On January 2nd, Bartley Healthcare and The Orchards at Bartley Assisted Living began partnering with HealthCare Interactive, conducting CARES Dementia Training, for all their employees. This is a campus-wide initiative, to have caregivers gain their certification in the CARES EssentiALZ Program.  All Bartley Healthcare employees completed this program certified in EssentiALZ Dementia Care at our Second Quarter Graduation, that took place on July 5th.

This specialized CARES training is an element of the comprehensive training and education program at Bartley Healthcare that enables its caregivers to better understand, and meet the needs, of it residents and patients.  CARES proficiency will further strengthen the Joint Commission Accredited Memory Care program at Bartley.
