Ceresti has created the world’s first caregiver-centric remote care platform aimed at improving care and reducing costs for persons living with dementia at home.

THE VALUE OF TRAINING FAMILY CAREGIVERS

Persons living with dementia have lost the ability to self-manage

Person living with dementia have lost the ability to self-manage their chronic conditions and rely on family caregivers for help. Most family caregivers lack the knowledge, skills and confidence required to provide care for a person living with dementia. This leads to unmanaged chronic conditions and other care challenges that increase caregiver stress and frequently result in acute incidents such as emergency room visits and hospitalizations.

Training and supporting family caregivers provides proven, effective and appropriate care

We train and support family caregivers to provide care for a person living with dementia at home. Effective and appropriate care reduces the risk and costs of acute incidents as well as the detrimental and lasting effects that acute incidents can have on the qualify of life of a person living with dementia.

FAMILY PROGRAM OVERVIEW

We integrate mobile technology, personalization, best practices and coaching into a scalable and cost-effective solution that trains and supports family caregivers to provide effective and appropriate care for a person living with dementia at home.

Determine if the Ceresti FAMILY Program is right for you.
Caregivers and families wishing to enroll in the FAMILY Program must meet the following criteria:
  • Good cell signal from a major provider (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile) at the home of the family caregiver. We can help determine which provider delivers the best signal at our home
  • The family caregiver and the person living with dementia live in the same house, or spend significant time together during the week
  • The person living with dementia has Alzheimer’s Disease or unknown dementia. We are working on enhancements for frontotemporal dementia, Lewy Body dementia or vascular dementia. Ask us to let you know when we are able to support these other types of dementia
Enrollment is simple.
