Social engagement 
and well-being

 Our mental, physical, and emotional health are all tied together. Connecting with others—that sense of belonging—is often what gives us joy, gives life meaning.
Even if your parent is a natural introvert or loner, they probably have activities or hobbies that they enjoy now or used to in the past. That joy and fulfillment are an integral part of our essential well-being and cognitive health.
At the very least, we all need something to look forward to.

A reason to get up in the morning!

Enrichment services

Our commitment to well-being includes a commitment to addressing loneliness and social isolation. Our goal is to bring back a sense of joy and mental stimulation. We promote engaging activities so our clients can thrive with a strong quality of life despite physical or mental challenges.


Is it time for driving retirement?

We can coordinate a safe driving test, and if driving retirement is recommended, we will help identify transportation options. From driving them ourselves to doctor appointments, to Paratransit, the Council on Aging transportation program, or senior versions of Lyft and Uber, we make sure your loved one can get where they need to go.

Our activity specialist

Everyone does better with some routine in their lives that includes simple, pleasant activities they can count on. People with dementia (e.g., Alzheimer's, Lewy body dementia, vascular dementia) depend very heavily on a reliable schedule. Regular and stimulating activities have
been shown to reduce sundown syndrome, wandering, and nighttime restlessness.
Our activity specialist will talk with your loved one and with you and other family members to understand more about your loved one's interests. Also, any current obstacles to pursuing favorite activities. With your loved one's abilities in mind, a plan will be created. It will provide
guidance and ideas so your loved one can remain stimulated and engaged with life.
Use this plan as a road map. Or you can have our activity specialist come and engage with your relative directly.

How is their diet and nutrition?

We firmly believe that wellness begins with good nutrition.In our assessment we check on the quality of the food in the house. Who prepares it? How do they go shopping? Is there food molding in the refrigerator? If heart disease is an issue, is your parent eating a salt-free diet prescribed by the doctor? If they are diabetic, are they eating thebest foods for diabetes control? For those who need extra help, our registered dietician will create easy-to-prepare menus. Or we can arrange to have food brought in. From local restaurants to a chef who prepares a week's worth of meals on site, we find creative ways toensure your parents are eating healthy and tasty meals.

If you believe there is more joy in life than your relative has been able to access of late, consider our enrichment services.
