Unlike other assisted living communities, Autumn Leaves is solely focused on the care of those with dementia and Alzheimer’s. Consequently, every facet of our assisted living residences from the building to the staff is focused to providing exceptional memory care.
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 Leave nursing staff will receive 2 hours of ongoing memory training each month. Our Medication Administrators receive all of this plus an additional 4 hours of training each quarter.
Your loved one is not only surrounded by a thoroughly trained nursing staff, but even our non – caregiving staff has been trained in basic dementia care. Every member of our team–from the housekeeper to the chef – have received 12 hours of dementia training within the first 60 days of their employment. They learn how to read resident non – verbal cues and how to insure their safety at all times. This added level of training assures your loved one a safe, happy, and comfortable environment.
All Autumn Leaves management has received 8 hours of training to become Certified Dementia Practitioners. Every Executive Director has received manager training in accordance with the requirements of the state.
To provide the best memory care for you and your loved one, thorough training, we believe, can be the great differentiator.
