Beth Sholom Addresses Dementia and Alzheimer’s
Beth Sholom has partnered with the Hearthstone Institute to implement the I’m Still Here approach in all its memory care units in Richmond, the only program of its kind in Central Virginia. I’m Still Here represents a radical paradigm shift in dementia care by eliciting an unprecedented level of true engagement from participants, enabling them to remain creative and actively engaged throughout their lives.
Beth Sholom is a certified I’m Still Here Center of Excellence. All staff working in memory care participated in a six-month onsite training program that included intensive training in Alzheimer’s and related dementias, communication techniques and life enrichment.
More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s or related dementias. The goal of the I’m Still Here approach is to ensure that that every person living with this challenge still has an opportunity to learn and have meaningful, purposeful experiences, regardless of the severity of their memory loss.
