Testimonials for Eric Collett

We had the opportunity of having Eric Collett visit our Assisted Living community for training of our employees and an interactive, informative lecture about dementia with our families.  He is an exceptional trainer.  Our staff was able to ask questions and better understand the cause and behavior of dementia and more importantly how to deal with it on a daily basis.  His style of dialogue and discussion is so much more effective than just lecture.  I got so much positive feedback from the family members who attended his discussion; they want to have him back every month.  They left feeling understood and supported, they also had their individual questions answered.  I recommend him highly as a trainer and speaker.”

“It was a great experience working with Eric Collett during the design process for a new Memory Care unit attached to an existing Assisted Living facility. He truly understands the needs and best environments for patients afflicted with dementia. From the size of bedrooms to transitions of finishes, his input was invaluable to every detail of our design. Eric raised awareness of optical issues in relation to dementia patients, and helped us understand how to use lights and darks in finishes, fixtures, and furniture fabric to produce the safest environment for residents. Understanding these needs upfront aided us in finding solutions in the early part of the design phase, allowing our team to avoid costly changes after construction.

Eric is both highly knowledgeable and incredibly passionate about caring for dementia sufferers, caregivers, family members, and staff. Be it for new construction or remodels, any time creating a safe environment for dementia residents and related staff is a project goal, I would highly recommend consulting with Mr. Collett. Our firm is highly likely to engage him again in the future.”
