ConnectedLIFE for Early Memory Loss at Concord Park
ConnectedLIFE is now at Concord Park! Concord Park has launched a new programming option called ConnectedLIFE, which is specifically designed to help residents who are starting to experience early signs of memory loss (sometimes diagnosed as MCI or Mild Cognitive Impairment) continue to thrive in group settings.
When is ConnectedLIFE the Right Fit?
Developed in 2016 by Concord Park’s management company Senior Living Residences, the ConnectedLIFE program is tailor-made for assisted living residents who are experiencing early symptoms of cognitive decline, Alzheimer’s or dementia but do not yet need a secure environment. Appropriate residents are often not thriving in general assisted living programming, including:
- Self-isolating or withdrawing from activities they used to enjoy
- Finding it difficult to participate in large group programming
- Having trouble paying attention for extended periods of time
- Finding difficulty maintaining social relationships
The ConnectedLIFE program meets residents where they’re at in a small, intimate, failure-free environment alongside other residents who understand what they’re going through.
Concord Park’s ConnectedLIFE is unlike any other assisted living program in our area!
