Memory Care & Dementia Rehabilitation
Improve balance, strength and confidence for greater safety
Memory loss or dementia can lead to confusion and loss of function, which can lead to falls and other safety issues in older adults. Through Ageility’s memory care and dementia rehabilitation programs, residents and caregivers learn techniques to better manage activities of daily living in order to maintain the highest levels of cognitive function. Our unique approach to memory care supports greater quality of life for residents and a better caregiving experience for their care partners.
Connections Rehab Program
Ageility’s Connections Program is an evidence-based memory care program aimed at maximizing the function of residents with dementia throughout the disease progression. By creating effective techniques and strategies to prevent further unnecessary decline and support remaining abilities, caregivers and families are better able to support the resident’s abilities to successfully age in place.
MOVE Fitness Program
MOVE is Ageility’s signature memory care fitness program. We take a holistic approach to wellness to wellness—where the top priority is maintaining quality of life and fostering a sense of purpose and engagement. Goals are accomplished through traditional fitness techniques, wellness activities such as yoga, tai chi, and massage and life enrichment activities such as gardening, dancing, cooking and golfing.
The best outcome of memory rehab from Ageility may be that everyone benefits—care partners, residents, their communities and the families who want their loved ones to be able to live their best possible lives.
Caregivers receive the support they need
Ageility teaches care partners easy-to-implement techniques to promote greater independence in residents with memory loss or dementia. Ageility therapists work to help increase cognitive function while reducing frustration and increasing ability to take care of their own needs such as bathing, dressing, managing medications, paying bills, and pursuing leisure activities. Residents enjoy enhanced memory, decision-making and self-expression while caregivers benefit from having a team supporting them.
Residents’ safety is increased
Ageility goes beyond rehab to establish appropriate levels of care, to better adapt a resident’s surroundings to be safer and to prevent falls, injuries and hospitalizations. Fewer episodes mean less likelihood of having to move to a higher level of care.
Community stays grow longer
By promoting safety and preventing the need to move to higher-level care settings, Ageility helps residents stay where they are most at home longer. Families avoid the stress of another move and a transition to more acute care, while residents retain as much independence as possible as they move through the stages of dementia.
