Diamond Memory Care Services is proud to form a partnership with the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) to promote continual improvement of care for people with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders, and to establish best practice at dementia care settings across the country. The program provides facilities with tools and resources to offer their clients the most current and highest---standards of care.The initiative, created by AFA and other industry experts, consists of a comprehensive on-site evaluation and ongoing consultation on strategies to achieve and sustain the highest standards or quality of care.
By recognizing those centers that meet these voluntary guidelines, Excellence In Care also helps facilities distinguish themselves from competitors, and offers families a point of comparison as they select programs that best meet the needs of their loved ones.
Following this process, the Excellence In Care Specialists will partner with the care setting, providing recommendations and ongoing consultation on how the facility can improve it's setting and services to meet the program's standards of excellence.
Care settings that successfully meet the standards established by this initiative will earn the status of Alzheimer's Foundation of America Excellence in Care Dementia Program of Distinction.
Excellence In Care serves as a resource--- and offers a comfort level---for families choosing care settings for their loved ones. If a facility has this status, families know that the care setting has voluntarily gone through the Excellence In Care evaluation process and has attained AFA's national standard of excellence.
