Overture Home Care Now a Dementia Live® Authorized Organization

Overture leadership team has completed Dementia Live coach training, and is now licensed to provide coaching services

(Fort Worth, Texas) --- Denise Helms, R.N., B.S.N, CEO of Overture Home Care, a Fort Worth, Texas-based home care service company, has announced that Overture has satisfied the requirements to become a Dementia Live® authorized organization. Dementia Live is an AGE-u-cate® Training Institute program.


According to AGE-u-cate Training Institute, Dementia Live program is a high impact, dementia simulation experience that immerses participants into life with dementia, resulting in a deeper understanding of what it’s like to live with cognitive impairment and sensory change.

“Many people don’t realize that dementia isn’t a specific disease, but rather a classification of symptoms associated with memory decline or a severe deterioration of cognitive abilities that ravages a person’s ability to do everyday tasks,” said Ms. Helms. “Dementia is terrifying for its victims and their loved ones, and it can cause so much pain, suffering, and confusion for everyone it touches. Understanding breeds compassion, and the Dementia Live training will help our caregivers provide even more empathic and enriching care for our clients with dementia. As well, having Dementia Live-trained caregivers affords our clients’ families deeper peace of mind.”

Overture’s Dementia Live training was spearheaded by Ms. Helms and Paige Wolk, Overture’s senior vice president and licensed social worker. The two executives completed the original training to become authorized coaches before training Overture’s caregivers. In addition to Dementia Live training, Overture provides a variety of continuing education courses to medical professionals.

According to Overture, several of the home care’s clientele suffer from dementia. The company’s leadership team wanted to continue to improve their care services, particularly in light of Fort Worth – Overture’s headquarters city – becoming a Dementia Friendly® community.

“As the population ages and we’re faced with the oncoming ‘silver tsunami,’ it’s important that organizations like Overture prepare their teams and our communities to support the growing number of people with dementia,” said Pam Brandon, president and founder of AGE-u-cate. “It gives me solace to know that there are more people prepared to care for those with dementia and their loved ones.”
