EMBRACE

Our philosophy at Care Around the Block is that it's not enough to simply cope with mild cognitive impairment or dementia. Our goal is to help our clients EMBRACE life and find purpose and meaning!

 

EMBRACE is designed to improve overall well-being and make our clients' lives easier.

For those early in the disease progression, we offer activities and ideas to help strengthen cognitive resilience and slow disease progression. If your loved one is living with advanced dementia, we target activities to engage through the senses and provide connections to increase quality of life.

EMBRACE is unique to CAB as it was designed in-house to address needs noted by our Care Managers. An EMBRACE cognitive assessment is completed by our EMBRACE Manager following the Care Management assessment.

 

Clients enrolled in the EMBRACE program engage in individualized activity sessions with their Certified EMBRACE Care Partner, with oversight from our EMBRACE Manager. Our EMBRACE Care Partners complete a rigorous 120-hour dementia care certification training to work with our EMBRACE clients.

Below is the meaning behind the acronym EMBRACE...
