Get to Know Us

The Dementia Care Specialists (DCS) team prepares individuals, teams, the business operation, and the environment to deliver quality dementia care and achieve positive outcomes.

Our training programs empower all who work with individuals with Alzheimer’s/dementia such as therapists, support staff, and managers with the skills and confidence to perform their role as a dementia capable team member working to improve quality of life, level of functional independence, safety, and health for those they serve.

We also partner with owners, operators, architects and professionals across the eldercare spectrum to help them achieve their goals. Whether improving an existing memory care program, in need of adding a memory care program, or designing a whole new community, our experienced team provides the tools, resources, and guidance to make it happen. We can work with your leadership team in a variety of ways - from a high-level advisory role to more extensive, hands-on involvement.

Our team of instructors and consultants are accomplished dementia experts and advocates from the field of occupational therapy who have extensive direct care experience. They are excited to train and their passion is contagious!

We are passionate leaders, committed to creating a Dementia Capable Society one partner at a time. We hope you are our next partner!

The DCS team is led by president Kim Warchol, OTR/L, a recognized advocate and leader. Get to know Kim Warchol.
