Replication of Joyful Connections

Joyful Connections is a structured social club for people with memory loss. The program is especially helpful in mitigating the effects of “sundowning.”

People with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias often need places to go and things to do to keep their minds active, keep them engaged with other people, and participate in activities that highlight their remaining skills and abilities, and most of all, they need to feel positive emotion. As a direct result of studying and applying the Habilitation Model to our work with 2Life residents, we developed Joyful Connections, a structured, afternoon, social drop-in club for people with memory loss with or without their care partners.
