The workshop is part of ComForCare's move to address the rising need for dementia care in Fairfield and New Haven Counties. ComForCare of Fairfield, CT is a premier provider of in-home care. They have announced a new approach to providing care to those having symptoms of dementia. Through their DementiaWise certification, ComForCare caregivers are trained in a special curriculum to develop understanding and skills in the most effective care techniques.
One of the programs under DementiaWise is Joyful Memories®️ – a music program that brings memories to life through music recognition. According to the Mayo Clinic, music can relieve stress, reduce anxiety and depression, and reduce agitation.
Joyful Memories can be done in a group setting where seniors and their loved ones sing and encourage movement through dance or as one-on-one activity where the ComForCare team builds a customized playlist based on a client’s life experiences and memories.

With ComForCare’s DementiaWise training, our team provides specialized care to keep clients calm, engaged, happy and functioning at their best,” said Neil Anand, Owner of ComForCare Home Care. “Our care team is dedicated to providing resources for seniors so all clients can live their best life possible.”
