FORT WORTH, TX – Civitas Senior Living, a leading name in the senior living industry, is proud to announce a major initiative in its commitment to exceptional dementia care. The company is investing in its department leaders, ensuring that they become certified dementia practitioners (CDPs).
This accreditation from the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners signifies that team members have undergone rigorous training to gain an in-depth understanding of dementia and its complexities. This move solidifies Civitas Senior Living’s dedication to providing the highest quality of care and support for seniors living with dementia in their communities.
More than six million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s (the most common form of dementia), and it is crucial to provide specialized care and support for those seniors and their families. Civitas Senior Living recognizes this and is taking proactive steps to further enhance the level of care they offer.
“Certifying our department leaders as CDPs is a significant milestone in our ongoing commitment to dementia care,” said Wayne Powell, co-founder and chief executive officer of Civitas Senior Living.
“This certification empowers our leaders with the knowledge and skills to provide the best possible care for residents living with dementia, ultimately enhancing their quality of life.”
Certified dementia practitioners undergo comprehensive training in various aspects of dementia care, including understanding the disease, communication strategies, managing challenging behaviors, and creating a supportive environment. By equipping their department leaders with this expertise, Civitas Senior Living aims to ensure that residents receive the specialized care and attention they deserve.
Civitas Senior Living is renowned for its person-centered approach to senior care, and this initiative aligns perfectly with its core values.
