All of our nursing staff has been trained to provide your loved one with the very best in memory care. This dementia care training is extensive and ongoing.
Each member of our nursing staff has received in-depth training in memory care. This includes 28 hours of memory care training prior to coming to Autumn Leaves and a total of 40 hours of training within the first 90 days of employment. In addition to this, all of Autumn Leaves’ nursing staff will receive 2 hours of ongoing memory training each month. Our Medication Administrators received all of this plus an additional 4 hours of training each quarter. Our requirements are among the highest in the industry.
Our comprehensive assessments are completed by the Autumn Leaves nurse upon move in, within the first two weeks of residency and then annually from there on out or if a significant change in health status is noted. For those loved ones who will need to move from one city to another, the Autumn Leaves nurse will travel to do the assessment in the city in which they currently reside. The RN meets with the family and potential resident to determine if your loved one would benefit from one of our communities. Once the decision has been made that your loved one will be joining an Autumn Leaves community, the RN will escort your loved one to our community at no added charge. Whether by plane, train or automobile, our nursing staff will go the extra mile to help ensure the safety of your loved one.
