Old Lyme— EPOCH Senior Living, a Northeastern senior healthcare organization, has recently partnered with Purple Flag for Dementia Care™ to implement systemwide accreditation across all 12 of its communities offering memory care. Purple Flag is an accreditation program developed to recognize excellence and drive continuous improvement in the quality of services provided to residents in Assisted Living and Long-Term Care communities, Home Care Agencies and other settings with an emphasis on individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias.
Purple Flag’s platform recognizes organizations that go above and beyond every day–– those communities that truly see residents for who they are and through care, support, and programming aim to enhance their cognitive, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Purple Flag-accredited communities are setting the gold standard for memory care.
“EPOCH is leading the way in the world of memory care by adopting the high-quality standards set by Purple Flag Accreditation systemwide. We believe this to be a clear indicator of EPOCH’s passion and commitment to providing the best care possible for their residents,” said Christopher Carter, President of the Connecticut Assisted Living Association (CALA) and Purple Flag Governance Committee member.”
