Aliviado Health provides innovative quality improvement programs consisting of training, education, mentoring, technology infrastructure and resources to home health and hospice agencies, long term care environments (e.g.nursing homes, assisted living, PACE), care management programs and other care providers who care to persons living with dementia and their care partners. We help teams advance their expertise in the complexities of care. Our tailored, compassionate care approach helps persons living with dementia and their care partners effectively manage symptoms, resulting in improved quality of life, decreased hospital readmissions, lower healthcare utilization and medication use, increased staff knowledge and confidence, reduced costs, and increased patient satisfaction scores. We are an implementation program of the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing (HIGN) at the NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing.
