Elder Care Alliance Implements “I’m Still Here” Approach in All Its Communities

Application of Engagement-Centered Memory Care Philosophy a First in California

ALAMEDA, Calif.– A pioneering engagement-focused memory care philosophy for people living with dementia is transforming and enriching lives in several California senior living communities, as Elder Care Alliance (ECA) recently announced its partnership with the Hearthstone Institute to implement the I’m Still Here™ (ISH) approach in all its communities: San Francisco, Oakland, San Rafael, and Camarillo – the first (and only at this time) communities to have it available on the West Coast.

More than five million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, with many living with it for more than a decade. The shared stance of these organizations is that every person living with dementia still has a great capacity to learn and experience a high quality of life regardless of the severity of their memory loss.
