Connections Dementia Rehabilitation
A Chance to Feel Successful Again
Connections is a dementia rehabilitation program that helps people living with dementia maximize their daily potential. Ageility therapists structure activities around residents’ abilities but also their unique possibilities, helping them reach for and celebrate personal victories.
About the Program
Connections is an evidence-based therapy program specially designed to help people with dementia build on their strengths to experience successes, and ultimately a better quality of life. The dementia rehabilitation program includes occupational therapy and speech therapy, caregiver support, treatment planning and guidance for daily activities focused on safety, accomplishment and independence.
How Connections Works
Connections begins with a comprehensive assessment performed by an Ageility therapists trained in the Allen Cognitive Disabilities Model. We then couple memory care treatment planning with daily activity planning designed to improve the quality of daily life.
Connections includes the following dementia rehabilitation services:
- Occupational and speech therapy sessions that leverage current abilities
- Caregiver support to help adjust interactions to what works best
- Identification of behavioral issues and a plan to overcome them
- A daily schedule structured around habits, routines and other performance patterns
Connections may be integrated with MOVE, Ageility’s signature memory care fitness program designed to engage residents with dementia in achieving their highest possible physical and cognitive fitness using traditional exercise and meaningful activities.
The Family Connection
We at Ageility understand how hard it can be to watch a loved one struggle with memory loss, communication, feelings of isolation or lack of interest in activities they once loved. Connections dementia rehabilitation programs support families by helping them identify the best activities to enjoy with their loved one and how to structure each day for success—and by letting them know help is always nearby and that they are not alone.
Living to one’s highest potential.
Connections can help people living with dementia live better lives. Results include giving each resident a sense of accomplishment and success according to their own unique abilities. Focused on the positive, Connections is an integral part of Ageility’s comprehensive memory care therapy and fitness offering.
