Judson Services, Inc. has received accreditation from Comfort Matters, a care practice and program developed by Beatitudes Campus in Phoenix, to become the first in the state to provide care with this organization’s seal of approval for dementia patient care.
During the 14-month accreditation process, Judson was reviewed by the care practice for their practices and staff competencies for treating, caring for and assisting people with dementia.
“As comfort-focused, person-centered memory care, Comfort Matters is a truly holistic approach,” said Kendra Urdzik, Judson’s vice president of health services and chief collaborative health officer. “It encompasses music therapy, art therapy, pain management and all the things that create pleasurable experiences for residents throughout the day. So everyone who has contact with our residents – from housekeepers to therapists – is a part of it.”
