The Retreat believes that continued training is essential to personal growth for all employees of the facility. Our motivated staff participates in ongoing professional improvement.

All staff members participate in individual, self guided learning through a 32 module training program funded by The National Institutes of Health and developed in conjunction with Duke University, University of New Mexico, and University of Maryland School of Nursing (The Alzheimer’s Caregiver). In addition to these unique learning lessons, each staff member participates in monthly group learning sessions led by our own physicians, nurse educators, or Ph.D. trained behavior specialist.

The mission of the facility is to provide services that go above and beyond others in the field and to concentrate all our efforts on dementia specialty care. It is our sincere hope that the families that entrust their loved one to The Retreat will feel a sense of security and safety knowing that The Retreat is dedicated to staff training, ongoing learning and translating the latest care research into daily programs.
