The Positive Impact of the Reading2Connect Program
is Far-Reaching and Lasting
Reviving the minds, voices, and self-esteem
of the older adults in your care.
Elders experience active engagement and initiation, a renewed interest in the world and desire to learn. Their past areas of expertise and passions are rekindled.
With our adapted books for support, older adults are able to genuinely express themselves, recall treasured memories, and connect deeply with others.
Boredom is replaced with fun.
Feelings of futility are replaced with independence.
Loneliness is replaced with friendships.
With our program, staff and care partners learn to implement a Montessori-based dementia-care approach. They appreciate having practical tools to enhance the social-emotional well-being of the older adults in all social and care situations. With Reading2Connect, employees report feeling more connected with residents, more effective in their work, and more invested in their jobs.
Administrators are proud to differentiate
their community from others by providing
an age-appropriate life-enrichment program
that celebrates residents' strengths and
compensates for needs. A program that
manifests the innovative, person-centered,
changing culture of senior care.
When seeing Reading2Connect activities, families of residents -- and families of prospective residents -- are thrilled to see the high level of communication and enjoyment. They are impressed with the authenticity and social elements that Reading2Connect infuses into the lives of older adults.
