Best Friends Approach
Touchmark communities offering memory care are certified Best Friends™ environments. This is an industry-leading approach developed specifically to care for people with dementia. It is person centered and based on the understanding that personal relationships are supremely important to the well-being of someone living with a dementia illness.
There are five essential elements of friendship: respect, empathy, support, trust, and humor. Touchmark team members keep these fundamentals in mind and build meaningful relationships with each person.
As professional best friends, they are able to adapt more easily to the changing needs of people living with Alzheimer’s disease or other age-related dementia.
