Healthy Living

It is important for professionals and family members to be able to communicate effectively with people living with dementia. Helping a person with a progressive brain disease to remain as independent as possible allows them to live with dignity. Engaging them in activities and modifying the environment to reduce stress are just two of the techniques to keep them independent and living with honor.

Aging Life Care Advisor™/ Care Management team member, Alyx Lennon works with people living with a memory impairment and their families. Her years as a Care Manager has shown her the importance of continuing to educate oneself on techniques, strategies and resources for dementia clients. To that end, Alyx has done the work to become a Certified Dementia Care Partners (CDCP), a program which is overseen by Inspired Memory Care. Completing the Certified Dementia Care Partners training is an accomplishment both encouraged and supported by Springpoint at Home.

There are several courses available for dementia care, such as the Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP) training. Held in a single day, CDP focuses on understanding the disease and is based on a presentation and accompanying material. The Certified Dementia Care Partners program is three full days of training, with a focus on practical skills which help the clinician to gain a mastery of techniques and strategies to make them successful when interacting with a person with dementia.

Training staff with educational programs like the Certified Dementia Care Partners ensures our Aging Life Care Advisor™/ Care Management team has the breadth and depth, through this education, to guide clients more effectively on their dementia journey.


“I am always looking for new information and for ways to learn more about the diseases of my clients. My work with people living with a progressive brain disease has shown me how important it is to find ways to better interact with them and gain more understanding of how to approach them.”

“When I heard about the Certified Dementia Care Partners training from Inspired Memory Care, I knew this would add another layer of expertise that would allow me to help my clients and their families navigate their dementia journey.”

“I was fascinated by how much the environment affects people with dementia. For example, certain floor patterns may scare them; a dark rug can look like a hole in the ground. There are even things you can do to keep someone from wandering, like painting a door to the outside to look like a bookshelf. All of these techniques are helpful, but we want to understand why the person wanders. Are they bored, in pain or looking for someone? When you understand why certain behaviors occur, you can find ways to stop or modify the behaviors.”
