Home Care Assistance – Toronto/York Region Announces Partnership with Dementia Support

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), July 9, 2014 – Home Care Assistance – Toronto/York Region (, the leading provider of non-medical, in-home senior care in the Greater Toronto Area, is announcing that it has entered into a partnership with Dementia Support.

Dementia Support has been able to design strategic plans for caregivers and other support workers that implement the best solutions for reducing the behaviours associated with dementia. Through the partnership, Home Care Assistance – Toronto/York Region hopes to expand on the range of its elder care services and resources.

“This is another big step to provide better elder care services to our seniors,” says Lester Fix, executive vice president of Home Care Assistance – Toronto/York Region. “Having our caregivers specially trained on how to handle seniors with dementia broadens our range of ways to support the elders that we care for and helps provide them with a higher quality of life.”

Dementia Support has enlisted the services of DementiAbility Enterprises, an international leader and creator of the Montessori Methods for Dementia, to provide the necessary education to their partners. When applied, the Montessori Methods for Dementia stimulate the senses and increase motor skills and socialization while reducing anxiety, boredom, and depression.

“It’s a proven system that’s garnered some positive results,” Fix concludes. “What we hope to do is use this education and training to bring those positive results to the seniors we care for. And now our caregivers can take their eldercare services one step further and really make a difference in the lives of seniors with dementia.”
