Assisted Living Locators, a national senior placement franchisor, and Dementia Care Education, the leading Alzheimer’s/dementia education, training, and consulting organization, announced they have partnered to raise the bar and deliver best-practice service and dementia care support to families during COVID-19. All Assisted Living Locators’ 140 franchisees are now dementia certified, with the majority choosing the Dementia Care Certified® designation, making it the first nationwide senior placement service to achieve system-certification.
“With 5.8 million people in the U.S. living with Alzheimer’s disease, a large number of our senior placements involve families having to locate assisted living or memory care for their loved ones,” said Angela Olea, Assisted Living Locators CEO RN. “The double hit of dementia and the COVID-19 pandemic has raised great concerns for people living with dementia. Having this dementia care training helps us provide much-needed support to families during COVID-19.”
“We are excited to align forces with such a forward-thinking company,” said Brian Browne, President of Dementia Care Education. “Assisted Living Locators provides exceptional service to families throughout the country. With our years of experience and track-record of expertise in education and training, we stand poised to positively impact care and quality of life for many families.”
After being trained and certified, Assisted Living Locators franchisees will be required to obtain CEU’s to maintain their certification and to stay abreast of the most current information in the field.
