Community-Based Program

All across America, cities and towns are providing services and support for people with cognitive challenges. The number of people with Alzheimer’s disease, the most common cause of dementia, is projected to increase to 14 million by 2050. Families are often at a loss as to where to go for support and knowledge. Community-based programs have developed unique ways to involve the community, leading industry experts, families, and their loved ones.

One of the most popular models for community-based programs is a weekly workshop that is attended by caregivers, most often family members, and their loved ones with dementia. Offering sessions for people with dementia at the same time enables the family members to receive the support they need while knowing their loved one is in a safe environment learning & creating.

The EngAGE EnCOURAGE™ program blends the strategies of lifelong learning + creativity, providing new and fresh experiences that support tapping into the unknown and celebrating life. This program offers community-based organizations an affordable and sustainable set of engagement sessions for those with cognitive challenges.
