The Dementia SMART Award is a prestigious award that is given to different organizations and businesses performing Dementia-friendly efforts in their product and service offerings. Dementia is a complex disease involving cognitive functioning, and businesses can contribute to making their lives easier by offering dementia-friendly products and services.
The Banner Alzheimer’s Institute provided all drivers of Envoy America were given dementia training as well as the important certification they need to assist patients with dementia. While patients with dementia should not be deprived of participating in meaningful and creative activities, it is important to apply the right planning. An important stabilizing factor to take into consideration by patients with dementia is transportation, and their families understand that traveling can disrupt a patient’s life. For a patient who is usually confused and not fully aware of his surroundings, traveling can be very disorienting and very difficult to manage.
The drivers of Envoy America are certified in handling people with different types of dementia given the program they were trained with. Envoy America is proud to be given this award because the special training and certification provide a very good extension of various healthcare services, for a smoother travel. One of the fundamental principles of Envoy America is helping senior citizens and patients with dementia to become and remain socially active, independent, and healthy. Envoy America is continuously delivering pioneering services, making a real difference to everyone, most especially to patients with dementia, their families and their caregivers in different settings. The Chief Executive of Envoy America , K.C. Kanaan, expressed his pride and sincerest gratitude for receiving the award.
