Accredited in Award-winning Dementia Care Program

After a 14-month training and accreditation process, our Hesston location of Schowalter Villa is accredited in Comfort Matters. Comfort Matters is a philosophy, care practice and an evidence-based program that improves the quality of care and quality of life for persons with dementia. 

The practice was developed at Beatitudes Campus in Phoenix through more than a decade of research around person-directed health care practices and the latest science on supporting people who live with dementia, including Alzheimer's disease.

Being certified as a Comfort Matters accredited provider demonstrates our commitment to embed care practices into our organization that provide the best quality of care and quality of life for persons with dementia. These policies and procedures are integrated in the North Meadows of Schowalter Villa, which is the designated dementia care neighborhood.
