Creative Solutions Announces Launch of SecureCare
Creative Solutions in Healthcare proudly announces the official launch of SecureCare, a culture change initiative and training program that aims to enhance care for seniors with aging brains. This dementia-focused program draws inspiration from Teepa Snow’ s renowned Positive Approach to Care®.
There are currently three certification that can be earned by Creative Solutions employees: Certified SecureCare Care Partner, Certified SecureCare Associate, Certified SecureCare Champion. These are comprised of various training methods, including web-based tests, online video resources, and in-person training and mentoring sessions. Each step builds from the last to completely change the way the learners interact with people and provide care.
These certifications better equip staff with the knowledge to provide quality care to residents living with dementia and the challenges that they can face. These courses specifically help teams to identify the stages of dementia, teach behavior management and communication techniques, and minimize potential safety risks.
“This is a total culture shift. Leadership, from top to bottom and across departments, is getting certified. It’s not just our clinical teams, our Divisional Vice Presidents and Area Directors of Operations are taking these courses.”
Over 55% of residents in skilled nursing facilities have a diagnosis of dementia, according to the Texas Healthcare Association (THCA). This is why the SecureCare program extends beyond specialty secured hallways, catering to individuals throughout the facility.
While rooted in Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Care, Creative Solutions in Healthcare’s SecureCare Certification is independent and incorporates the organization’s mission and values. Though based on the educational content and methods from Teepa and a PAC Certification, the delivery, views, and opinions are representative of this organization alone.
