The Fun Theory: Transforming Dementia Care Through Engagement Technology
Senior living professionals are looking to improve clinical and quality of life outcomes for their residents. Engagement technology programs provide opportunities to care for residents undergoing physical and cognitive decline by focusing on their strengths and interests and by encouraging self-expression and personal development. This strength-based, person-centered approach results in a better person-environment fit, which is essential to increase self-esteem, enhance confidence and improve the quality of life for all residents. Engagement technology programs that engage and motivate can facilitate enriched interactions and allow staff to recognize that well-being encompasses all the dimensions of personhood—mind, body and spirit. Engagement technology is intuitive, and if approached with specific objectives and milestones in place, the rewards to residents and professional and familial caregivers can be transformative.
