Dementia Care Specialists (DCS) has recognized The Willows at Mallard Cove, Cincinnati, OH as the first facility in the greater Cincinnati area, and the second in the state of Ohio, to achieve the status of Distinguished Provider—the highest credential in dementia care.
"When people look for a long-term care facility, they want to select a place that they trust will offer the best and most attentive care for themselves or their loved ones. That trust is exactly what the Distinguished Provider status communicates. It is a seal of approval from industry leaders," said Kim Warchol, OTR/L, Dementia Care Specialists president and founder.
A Distinguished Provider demonstrates a commitment to high-quality, person-centered dementia care. This includes compliance with training standards and the implementation of CPI's Dementia Capable Care training and principles. For individuals at all stages of Alzheimer's/dementia, these principles promote the highest possible level of function, maximize health and safety, and help maintain dignity and quality of life.
With more than 5.4 million Americans living with Alzheimer's/dementia, and many more projected over the coming years, the level of care provided by The Willows at Mallard Cove can serve as an example and help elevate the standard of dementia care in the US.
In addition to recognizing facilities, DCS also recognizes therapists and care partners who demonstrate the passion, heart, and skill to deliver Dementia Capable Care. DCS welcomes both facilities and individual practitioners to apply for the Distinguished Provider program.
