Transactional Dementia Intelligence (TDI Model) Is the Premier Dementia Treatment Program


A Revolutionary Re-imagining of Dementia Care

By formalizing partnerships between families, professional caregivers, and Dementia Coaches, the TDI Model creates a unified structure for communication, training, and support. This reduces frustration and isolation for all involved. Staff are empowered to provide individualized care suited to each care receivers's needs. The TDI Model's emphasis on deep dementia intelligence minimizes reactive behaviors and the need for medication. Care receivers experience a higher quality of life, which immediately distinguishes a TDI Model Partner as unique in their local market(s.) 

From an economic viability standpoint, the TDI Model's benefits include increased retention, job satisfaction, cooperation, and consistency in care. As a business model, it boosts the value of care facilities in the eyes of stakeholders through team-based training and a formalized partnership system. The TDI Model represents a comprehensive solution to issues plaguing traditional dementia care models. By boosting economic performance, the TDI Model garners support from your organization “from the top down”—the only direction that works on adopting new programs for the long term.

"Healthcare leaders have created a culture which does not have the structures, processes, or been able to retain people with the needed mindsets to support their LTC services. The Transactional Dementia Intelligence(sm) business model of dementia care has built-in structures, processes, and retention incentives to revolutionize the entire organization." ~ Dr. Ethelle Lord
