Dear Ms. Stimson and Ms. Biot-Gordon,
On behalf of American Senior Communities, I would like to endorse the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners.
I have had the pleasure of being both a Certified Dementia Practitioner and Certified Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Care Trainer for approximately a full decade. In that time, I have used the NCCDP Alzheimer's and Dementia Education curriculum to provide training to hundreds of dementia care team members on behalf of two LTC providers; teaching others to better serve elders living with various forms of dementia with greater efficacy and compassion.
I have found this organization to act consistently with the highest level of professionalism, integrity, and customer service. Most impressive is your continued involvement in the day to day operations of the organization, Sandra and Lynn, as you continue to assist in the service of those of us offering education in the public and professional sectors, by personally answering emails, and making phone calls to provide assistance and resolve challenges as they occur.
ASC Memory Care remains steadfast in our commitment to utilizing NCCDP products, and we were pleased to add two additional Regional CADDCT’s to our Home Office Memory Care Support team this past December. We added the additional trainers so that we may better reach more of our care community team members in the service of our elders living with A.D. and related forms of dementia. We will also be introducing the Support Group leader certification in our Memory Care Weekly Message tomorrow, 3/26/18, that will reach all our ASC Memory Care, Community, and Regional leaders within our company to encourage them to take advantage of this exciting new certification opportunity.
Thank you for the provision of your excellent dementia training curricula, and for your support of our efforts. We look forward to future and long-lasting collaborative efforts as we continue to expand our service energies across the state of Indiana, and potentially, beyond.
Most gratefully and sincerely,
Melanie K. Perry, M.S., CDP, CADDCT
Director of Memory Care Support Services
