Osborn Staff Completes Alzheimer’s Association ECHO Training

Staff members at The Osborn’s Edward C. Pasciuti H.O.P.E. Center for Memory Care recently completed the Alzheimer’s Association’s ECHO® training, a continuing education series enabling professional care providers to better understand the disease and other forms of dementia as well as offer optimal care.

The Osborn’s nationally-recognized H.O.P.E. Center, which stands for “Home Environment, Optimism, Passion, and Empathy,” offers family-style living environments for older adults with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia on the continuum of care community’s 56-acre arboretum campus in Rye.

The H.O.P.E. Center’s direct care staff participated in seven-week-long ECHO training, which included person-centered care, activities of daily living, assessment, care planning, dementia-related behaviors, and the importance of quality improvement and evaluation. At the conclusion of the training, The Osborn received an official certificate of completion from the Alzheimer’s Association.

“We are proud that The Osborn staff was selected by the Alzheimer’s Association to participate in this rigorous program,” said President and CEO Matthew G. Anderson. “Our staff will use the ECHO training to advance our commitment to offering care that provides optimism, passion, and empathy to those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.”

Designed to improve health outcomes, the program shares case studies and allows for open discussion, inspiring attendees with new solutions so that they can serve as a resource for their colleagues and communities. Case-based learning allows participants to learn from experts in the field through video conferencing to foster interactive learning.

According to Kayla Kelly, Director of The Osborn’s Assisted Living and Memory Care Programs, “This type of advanced training elevates our staff to be some of the best trained in the industry. It directly benefits our residents by giving our staff the ability to provide quality, specialized, person-centered care. Our commitment to ongoing education and training helps set The Osborn’s programs apart from others in the community.”

The Alzheimer’s Association has conducted multiple Project ECHO programs in primary care and assisted living communities. The Association is also formalizing a global network of ECHO hubs, partnering with the research community and medical professionals as well as key stakeholders in the dementia care industry. This consortium will increase evidence around the use of ECHO in promoting best practice dementia care.

In addition to The H.O.P.E. Center for Memory Care, The Osborn offers Independent Living, Assisted Living, and The Pavilion skilled nursing. The Osborn Pavilion received an overall 5-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and a top rating by U.S. News & World Report.
