    Thank you to our Sponsor!


    If we have learned nothing from our collective national effort to reduce antipsychotic drugs it is that the solutions are multifaceted. The way to achieve the reduction is not simply a strategy to prioritize which residents to taper and withdraw but, to discover and train staff in a wide array of approaches and focus areas that individualize the care of residents. Our guest, Ann Wyatt, is  a national expert in dementia and palliative care and part of the team that developed the Comfort Matters program first begun in the Beatitude Community in Arizona. Ann will share essential strategies and research from the experience and provide ideas to help you organization. Ann is someone you don't want to miss! Staff will come away with fresh ideas and an array of strategies to improve dementia care in your center.

    But first, a llittle about how it all began. Comfort Matters got its start in 2005, when Beatitudes Campus, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), partnered with Hospice of the Valley, and received funding for the initiative from BHHS Legacy Foundation. The goal was to create a model program of best practices in dementia care that could be replicated to improve quality of care and quality of life practices that emphasize an approach focused on the comfort of the person with dementia.

    Originally Comfort Matters was called Palliative Care for Advanced Dementia: A Model Teaching Program (PCAD). As is true of any palliative care model, the goal is to make people comfortable by relieving the symptoms, pain and stresses of illness. Although palliative care is often associated with end-of-life, Comfort Matters promotes living better with dementia by focusing on the person’s day-to-day comfort. By addressing the significant challenges common to advanced stages of dementia, Comfort Matters education and research improves practices across the spectrum of early to advanced stages. Hundreds of interdisciplinary teams from long-term care-, assisted living-, and dementia care facilities, are using these proven concepts to improve dementia care. 

    Why not round up an interdisciplinary team from your organization to listen this informative web broadcast, live with Ann Wyatt. Wednesday, April 26th at 3 PM EST.
