Our complete memory care program, the Warchol Best-Abilities Care ModelSM, is a fully functional model of care based on the belief that every individual with Alzheimer’s/dementia is unique. It was developed to work in tandem with an optimized physical environment to improve health, safety, level of functional independence, and quality of life.
We utilize an extensive life story questionnaire and other surveys to learn what’s really familiar and meaningful to the person. Daily routines. Interests. Hobbies. Family connections. Dietary preferences. This personal information, gathered largely from family input, guides person-centered care at every stage of dementia.
Cognition is the primary determinant of a person’s level of independence. We use Claudia Allen’s Cognitive Disabilities Model to determine an individual’s cognitive level. This information provides a road map for daily staffing needs and activity management.
When people have Alzheimer’s, what has been meaningful to them all their lives doesn’t change. What changes is their ability to engage in life independently. So we meet them at their cognitive level and adapt our care approach to engage them in life.
Organizations that choose to implement the Warchol Best-Abilities Care ModelSM receive a customized set of techniques and templates, along with training to embed the philosophy into their culture of care. These tools can help you achieve the positive outcomes you’re after.
