I’m pleased to share with you this video with Maureen Rodgers, the Director of Services and Quality Assurance at Provision Living.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Maureen and the Provision Living team for years, and I’m happy that they’re pursuing our Distinguished Provider recognition for all their communities. As Maureen says, this professional acknowledgment is a symbol of each community’s commitment to deepening their skills, their training, and their passion for delivering a higher standard of memory care.

When facilities and care partners pursue Dementia Capable Care training and partner with us, they set themselves apart with training and standards that help them focus on making life better for people with dementia. This, in turn, allows care partners to get more satisfaction and less stress from their jobs, and it helps family members feel comfortable with the qualifications of those caring for their loved ones.  
I’m proud of the commitment that Provision Living and all of our partners have made to this higher standard of dementia training. I’m proud of all our partners who achieve this level of professional recognition. I’m also proud of our partners who commit to delivering better care through our memory care consulting services. I know these individuals and organizations work harder because they truly desire to enable those in their care to thrive!
If you’re a family member searching for a facility for your loved one, I urge you to look for a community that holds Distinguished Provider status. If you work in a community that’s committed to Dementia Capable Care training, I ask you to pursue Distinguished Provider status. And if you’re a therapist or care partner, I encourage you to pursue our Dementia Capable Care Therapist or Dementia Capable Care Partner distinguished status.  
I encourage everyone to learn about or work toward Distinguished Provider status because it represents a commitment to high quality memory care training  that can help people with dementia:
  • Enjoy quality of life as they are enabled to participate successfully in meaningful activities throughout each stage of the disease.
  • Be safe and feel hope, security, and even joy.
I can’t stress enough how vital it is that we as a society demand a higher quality of life for the people we love who are living with dementia. This can happen only when staff are well trained in providing a higher standard of care.
