 To Give Person-Centered Care, Learn Your Elder's Life Story

 At Dementia Care Specialists, we're excited for the future, because we're cultivating hope for people with dementia and their caregivers. Each story we tell is a celebration of a life rediscovered. We help communities facilitate person-centered care by learning the life stories of the elders they care for. We've found that when you truly understand a person's preferences, interests and background, you can successfully prevent many of the difficulties so many of our elders needlessly experience.
