San Diego Home Nursing Company Achieves Alzheimer's Association Training Certification For 3rd Year
Home Health Agency in San Diego Credits Ongoing Training From The Alzheimer’s Association as One Reason For Continued Company Growth and High Satisfaction From Clients
By: Linnea Goodrich - Firstat Nursing Services
The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research. According to Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat, “caregivers who complete this training by the Alzheimer's Association Care Academy have a much better understanding of this complex disease.”
The Alzheimer’s Association works on a global, national and local level to enhance care and support for all those affected by Alzheimer’s and related dementias.
“We pride ourselves on making sure that our caregivers get as much training in this area as possible. Caregivers that go through this training have improved skills in terms of managing challenging behaviors, providing better personalized and attentive care, connecting mentally and emotionally with patients, and helping ease stress levels on other members of the family,” said Goodrich.
Firstat Nursing Services has provided San Diego with home health, home nursing and home care for elderly, disabled and injured people since 1997. “We take our responsibilities very seriously” continued Goodrich, “because we know we know we are taking care of someone’s father, mother brother or sister. Getting the Alzheimer’s Association certification is just one of many ways we strive to provide the best care possible.”
