About Us

Our Approach

Where There is Help, There is Hope

The number of people living with dementia is growing and unfortunately at this time there is no cure.  Our main goal at New Hope Dementia Solutions is to enable those living with dementia to remain in their home and community while minimizing caregiver stress.   We use functional outcome measures to complete our initial in-home visit and make appropriate recommendations according to evidence-based practices. Our findings will help guide us in developing a person-centered individualized plan to assist in improving aspects of both cognitive and physical function, as well as management of any challenging symptoms and behaviors.  Scheduled follow-up visits enable continued monitoring of a client’s abilities and limitations, while assisting caregivers in navigating the continuously changing horizon of dementia care.  We believe “dementia” is only a word, it does not define who a person is or what potential they can achieve. 

“If you have met one person with dementia, you’ve only met one person.  That is, each individual will talk, act, remember, and behave differently.  Not simply because of what stage of dementia they are in, but because they are who they are.”

Our Founders

Arienne and Darla are Certified Dementia Practitioners (CDP) with a passion for dementia care.  Their mission is to take away the stigma related to dementia and focus on a person’s abilities rather than limitations. Although dementia has a progressive nature, they recognize a person’s potential to stay safe in their home with those who love them the most.

They began their journey as rehabilitative therapists working with the geriatric population.  They recognize the difficult decisions people are faced with and the unknown certainty of their future.  After years of evaluating and treating people in acute care, long-term care, and on memory care units, their professional lives crossed.  They discovered that their passion for helping those with dementia aligned, and they developed their current approach to dementia care and dementia consultation.
