The ICA revolves around a simple idea: the universal need to support and augment knowledge in the practice of providing dementia care. Our philosophy is to connect elements of care and practice, confront and address problems in dementia care, encourage interprofessional healthcare teams that include family caregivers, and help the profession of caregiving develop genuinely well-informed care professionals.

PRIMING FOR COOPERATION is our motto at ICA. To that end our coaching and consulting aims to minimize resistance on the part of the care receiver. Our work guides our management in every selection, decision, in order to accomplish ICA’s larger goal of inspiring others to adopt a universal standard in the delivery of dementia care services. We should always ask: How does our approach prime the care receiver to be more engaged and less resistant? Because every human life is sacred, individuals living with dementia must be able to feel safe, retain a sense of independence, and be respected and treated ethically.
