Best Friends for the Best Care

About the Best Friends™ Approach

Best Friends™ is a method of care for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. This comprehensive approach is grounded in the understanding that relationships are supremely important in dementia care and require the essential elements of friendship: respect, empathy, support, trust, and humor.

The Best Friendsapproach to dementia care is completely person-centered and flexible enough to adapt to each person’s remaining strengths and abilities. The Best Friends products and trainings will allow you and your organization to adopt this successful and person-centered model of care.

Best Friends™ nationwide!

The Best Friends™ approach has been adopted across the United States and Canada, with Master Trainers at more than 90 locations! Check out where Best Friends are located.
