Family caregiver empowerment program to be offered to Landmark Health patients and their caregivers in multiple markets
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., and CARLSBAD, Calif., October 23, 2018 – Landmark Health, an industry leader of in-home, risk-based medical care, and Ceresti Health, a leading provider of family caregiver empowerment solutions, announced the expansion of Ceresti’s coaching, education and support pilot program to additional markets where Landmark Health currently operates.
“We are excited by our experience to date with the caregiver pilot program in our Albany market and eager to expand the pilot to learn more,” said Dr. Christopher Dennis, Chief Behavioral Health Officer at Landmark Health. “The Ceresti program is a valuable tool that our providers can offer to family caregivers who struggle with the specific challenges and needs of Landmark Health patients living with dementia or cognitive impairment.”
Ceresti’s family caregiver empowerment solution leverages its proven digital platform, remote coaches, evidence-based content and a proprietary “personalization engine” to help family caregivers (e.g., spouses or adult children) understand their loved one’s health challenges and develop the knowledge, skills and confidence required to take a more active role in managing their loved one’s health. More empowered caregivers achieve better patient outcomes, including adherence to care plans, reduced utilization of healthcare services, and improved quality measures, while enabling aging in place.
“Landmark Health has been a great partner to help us demonstrate the benefits and economic value of empowering family caregivers of patients with complex health needs, which includes the majority of patients living with dementia,” said Dirk Soenksen, Ceresti’s co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We look forward to working with more of Landmark Health’s providers to enhance care for patients living with dementia or cognitive impairment.”
