Compassionate Touch® is an approach combining skilled touch and specialized communication shown to prevent stress reactions for people living with dementia and enhance quality of life for those in later stages of life. Through this program, care partners also enjoy the benefits of reduced stress and increase in job satisfaction that are associated with positive human connection.

Empowers care partners to achieve goals related to person-centered care
Decreases anxiety, promotes sleep, and reduces pain

Builds strong relationships and demonstrates a commitment to culture change

There is an urgent need to equip care partners with practical tools that create positive outcomes and empower them to achieve goals related to person-centered care. Compassionate Touch® is a holistic, personalized approach designed to ease physical and emotional distress while building strong relationships with care partners. It combines focused skilled touch with compassionate presence allowing care partners to connect with the person rather than the disease or condition.

Our goal is to help create cutting-edge dementia care by system- wide integration of Compassionate Touch®. We empower and license communities, agencies and associations to implement the Compassionate Touch® program for staff training, family engagement, and community education.
