About DementiaWise®

DementiaWise® is an occupation-based, team-centered training program, which serves to help home care teams resolve dementia-related challenges collaboratively with clients and their families. Agencies and their teams complete DementiaWise video training modules to learn about Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal dementia, and other forms of dementia. With an integrated essentiaALZ® exam provided by the Alzheimer’s Association, these modules both enhance and review our franchise owners’ dementia care expertise.

DementiaWise® Approach

We offer a variety of services to fit the needs of clients and their families and specialize in care for those living with Alzheimer’s or dementia.Our innovative approach is changing the way home care agencies approach dementia care training across the U.S. and Canada. Our high volume of certified locations results in better consistency and outcomes. People with dementia have unique needs and can often continue to live at home throughout the disease progression. The varying types of dementia can diminish a person’s ability to understand and communicate, alter their behavior and moods, and affect their physical health. Even an extension of six to 12 months at home can benefit people with dementia and their families. ComForCare understands the disease’s progression and caters plans to clients’ current needs to help them live at home as long as possible and feel at home no matter where they live. We optimize an individual’s remaining abilities and focus on meaningful connections and beneficial activities that help enhance the quality of life.
