L. Engagement for the Full Continuum of Memory Challenges

Are you looking for better ways to serve people with dementia who live outside of your memory care program but are not benefiting from traditional activity programs? Then this session is for you. Presenters will introduce you to an evidence-based model called the Continuum of Cognitive Health (CCH), which you can use to provide high levels of engagement and support to residents and clients in all service lines as their cognitive needs change. Let presenters educate you about the evidence base for adapting engagement experiences for the full continuum of memory challenges. Review case studies demonstrating the effectiveness of this approach from an operational, marketing, and quality-of-life perspective.
