The Positive Impacts of the Reading2Connect® Program

 are Far-Reaching and Lasting

ELDER BENEFITS

Elders experience active engagement, initiation, a renewed interest in the world, and a 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.

With our program, staff and support partners learn to implement a Montessori-based approach to care and to friendship. They appreciate having practical tools to enhance the emotional well-being of the older adults in all care and social situations.

 

With Reading2Connect®, employees report feeling more connected with residents, more effective in their work, and more invested in their jobs.
