No two healthcare organizations, patients, or families are alike. And like the seasons, dementia progresses and changes.
Partnerships for Health demystifies dementia care. We deliver innovative, high-quality, and results-oriented dementia care consultation, training, and resources—aimed at engaging and equipping:
- Healthcare Professionals,
- Patients’ Families,
- Students & Community Organizations, and
- People with the Diagnosis.
Helping You Through All Seasons
Our goal is to facilitate better understanding, communication, physical safety, and emotional well-being in interactions with those caring for individuals with dementia—by both healthcare professionals and families.
At PFH, we cast a light on what dementia is, and isn’t. Through our workshops, keynotes, and DVDs, we offer simple processes aimed at connecting with patients where they are. We let caregivers know what to expect, while offering a simple, safe, evidence-based method to foster successful interactions.
Along the way, we open the door to positive, meaningful experiences with those individuals with dementia—in every season.
Our outcomes include:
- Infusion of best practices in dementia care
- Enhanced wellness and safety of those with dementia and their caregivers
- Alignment between healthcare providers and family members
- Improved organizational leadership
- Increased public awareness and knowledge of optimal dementia care
- Imparted practical, hands-on skills to create meaningful relationships between caregivers and those with dementia—throughout their lifespan.
Why Partnerships for Health?
- As an organizational healthcare leader, PFH understands the challenges you face in meeting the needs of your stakeholders, leaders, and employees—as well as your clients with dementia and their families. We know you juggle state education requirements, staff needs, and safety concerns—all while remaining sensitive to each patient’s diverse story.
- As a family member, PFH respects the personal call you answer as you care for a loved one with dementia. We know the potential for pain and confusion, as you grasp onto what was in search for what will be.
At PFH, we’ve experienced both roles and know how to balance them. Our principal, Heather McKay, holds unique credentials, compassion, and credibility, having served as a:
- Distinguished healthcare provider
- Seasoned healthcare leader, trainer, and consultant
- Granddaughter caring for her grandmother with Vascular Dementia.
We believe that your employees deserve dementia care training that is engaging, personalized, transformational, and highly practical—while meeting the state required education needs and ensuring safety in your facility. And we believe that family members deserve tools to interact successfully with loved ones.
