Memory Caregiver Academy of Austin (MCAAustin) strives to identify, expertly train, and send out women and men graduating from high school to be qualified, competent, and compassionate caregivers for elderly people with dementia, helping them to age in place.
Additionally, MCAAustin intends to improve the quality of services to people with dementia living in Austin, especially in low income and underserved areas of town. People living in these areas are a first priority, primarily those who are trying to stay in their own homes.
People with Dementia:
- Should not be defined by their diagnosis.
- Regardless of socioeconomic status, have the right to continue with day to day life in this community with affordable caregiving options.
- Benefit from professional caregivers of diverse backgrounds who have been expertly trained specifically in dementia care. These trained caregivers offer compassionate, competent, and respectful care. They are dependable, honest, trustworthy, responsible, inclusive, and courageous.
