Engaging Ideas

December 11, 2023

MRC’s Life Enrichment teams met with Dr. Tam Cummings, Gerontologist, to learn more about customizing programs for those living with forgetfulness. Dr. Cummings is a leading voice in elder centered care that considers the staging of the elder’s dementia to determine appropriate engagement strategies. The workshop allowed the teams to develop a more robust schedule of daily offerings while being stretched towards greater creativity. “Understanding the stages gives us a clearer picture of how to be better care partners, despite their diagnosis, in a way that can lead to better days and more restful nights. Meaningful engagement is our goal and this workshop allowed us to think more innovatively about how we can achieve this more often,” expressed Vice President of Operations, Amy Horton.
