DementiaWise® Teaches Behavioral Strategies
The DementiaWise® program teaches a person-centered approach to care that uses behavioral interventions to help people with dementia continue to live at home, where they are most comfortable and content. Our caregivers learn what kind of triggers to watch for. By getting to know their clients, they can use techniques to diffuse behaviors and emotions before they start. The program emphasizes compassionate, practical strategies to support clients at all stages of dementia through the end of life.
DementiaWise® Teaches Meaningful Activities
Activities of daily living, such as eating, dressing and bathing, are essential for good health. However, Meaningful Activities such as board games or playing cards, community outings, and music can bring people joy and purpose. Studies have shown that music connects to the part of the brain where memories live. Our caregivers use Meaningful Activities to provide positive sensory, intellectual, cognitive, and social stimulation. Activities like these can prompt past memories, enhance relationships, add enjoyment to life, and so much more. We enjoy getting to know our clients, and helping them to keep doing what they love to do.
