A Dementia SMART Award was given by the Dementia Society of America to Envoy America which is a specialized program which is offering accompanied transportation in addition to companionship and assistance for patients and seniors. With the Dementia SMART Award, the Dementia Society of America celebrates and recognizes various organizations and businesses with large-scale efforts to promote Dementia-friendly products and services. As we all know, dementia is a very complex disease that involves cognition, and organizations and businesses can contribute to making patients’ lives and their families easier by offering dementia-friendly products and services.
All drivers of Envoy America were given dementia training as well as certification, and this was provided by the Banner Alzheimer’s Institute. If ever a person has dementia, it does not necessarily mean he can no longer, in any way, participate in creative and meaningful activities. Traveling is considered a total disruption of activities or routine, which is an important key or stabilizing factor of a patient’s daily life. Patients with dementia are unaware of their environment and are usually confused, so traveling can be difficult to manage and very disorienting.
Because all drivers of Envoy America are certified and trained to deal with patients suffering from dementia, they can handle them properly and accordingly. Envoy America is proud to be given this award because the special training and certification provide a very good extension of various healthcare services, for a smoother travel. When it comes to the mission of Envoy America, they exist to also helping seniors to remain healthy, socially active, and independent. Envoy America delivers a pioneering service, making a real difference to patients with dementia, as well as their families and caregivers in different settings. Envoy’s America Chief Executive, K.C. Kanaan, expressed his sincerest gratitude and pride for receiving the prestigious Dementia SMART award. According to Kevin Jameson, the president of Dementia Society, the award is given to Envoy America as a great tribute to the outstanding work of their drivers as well as their management team, delivering world-class transportation services to people with dementia, their caregivers, and their families.
