Colorado has increased the state requirements for the necessary hours of training for professional caregivers.
Caregivers with more education improve staff retention, job satisfaction, and resident care. Education is more cost-effective than staff turnover and survey deficiencies. This applies equally to assisted living and memory care residences because of the higher numbers of residents with whom we interact have memory care challenges. Our programs can meet your annual training requirements.
Memory Care Consulting offers person-centered education through “The Spirit in Alzheimer’s”
Programs, including 4 eight hour classes, in-services, workshops and trainings formatted to your needs.
Megan is on the Alzheimer’s Association Colorado referral list for dementia education.
We would not live to old age if
longevity had no meaning for the species.
– Carl Jung
Two-thirds of all the people who have ever lived past the age of 65 in the entire history of the world are alive today. In the U.S., There are 40.3 million people age 65 and older, up 5.3 percent from 35 million in 2000. These numbers are expected to increase rapidly over the next decade.
Our culture sees aging as a process of relentless decline. This bias is an expression of society’s materialist values. The spiritual hollowness of materialism undermines our culture and threatens to destroy the planet. Old age is a summons to an alternative view. It is the domain of reflection, inner enrichment and deepening spirituality. These qualities have the potential to revitalize our culture. It is our charge in later life to realize and transmit this gold.
