Person Centered Care

Karen Love, Executive Director of the Dementia Action Alliance, perhaps said it best. “Service is compassion made visible.”

Person-centered care is not a marketing expression but a “moral and ethical societal responsibility to support persons living with dementia as holistic, existential beings.” In a January, 2013 white paper entitled Dementia Care: The Quality Chasm, the Dementia Initiative agreed on three core values for person-centered dementia care:

Larmax supports these values through actions that, taken collectively, separate our model of care from others.

With only 8 residents per home, there is a very strong sense of belonging between residents, their families and staff

    The commitment to person-centered care starts with the owners, who are actively involved in day-to-day operations

    With three direct caregivers for eight residents, our staff-to-resident ratios lead the industry and enable caregivers to focus on personal interactions and relationships

    Professional staff includes 2 full-time RN’s, music, art and recreational therapists, and a social worker all of whom actively contribute to the wellness of each resident and family

    Innovative, evidence based programs such as music and equestrian therapy contribute to  an individual’s enjoyment as well as their physical and emotional health

    Homes are purposefully built, integrating barrier free design, vibrant materials and comfortable furnishings to promote safety and belonging in the warm, secure context of home
