Meaningful Engagement

ACTIVITY VISIT

HOURLY & PACKAGES

Activity Visit provides cognitive engagement and socialization on a one-time or ongoing basis. Appropriate activities will be planned accordingly after learning more about their past and present interests, hobbies, music preference, favorite foods, family life growing up, career, and most cherished life experiences. We will share ideas, provide tools, and coach family members on techniques to set themselves up for success, enhance communication and engagement, and create positive "living in the moment" experiences with their loved one.

Healthcare Staff Training

DEMENTIA TRAINING COACH

HOURLY & PACKAGES

Dementia education training for care professionals can be customized for group in-service sessions as well as one on one coaching with your team. Our services are available on an hourly basis or as a bundle option to best accommodate ongoing dementia coaching sessions. All training is tailored to meet the needs of your team.

LONG DISTANCE CAREGIVING SUPPORT

HOURLY & PACKAGES

Families who live outside of the Washington, D.C. metro or Kansas City metro but have a loved one living locally can benefit from routine visits. After each visit, our team will update and alert you as there are changes in cognition or unsafe behaviors observed. This can allow them to maintain independence and provide you with better peace of mind.
