Resident profiles are the starting point for offering living experiences on the individualized level, but filling them out and using them seems like they’re treated as more of a joke than as a way to get to know residents.

To continue the month-long conversation for World Alzheimer’s Month, we’ve been taking a look at various topics surrounding Alzheimer’s and Dementia. This week, we’ll be diving into different methods anyone can use to help improve memory recall in people with Dementia.
In this post, we’ll be looking at consistent assignment, when staff members routinely care for the same residents (in 80% of their shifts), and how this can create lasting benefits in your community.
