Springfield Plan of Care
At Homewatch CareGivers of Springfield, MA, we have worked with many clients who are living
with some cognition issues and so we create a plan of care accordingly.
In order to provide the best in-home senior care for these individuals,
we have developed “engagement boxes,” which our care partners
(caregivers) are trained to use with our clients. Several of our clients
use to go to the beach, and we developed a “beach box”, which
gives them a chance to experience the sights, sounds, and more of the
beach so that all five senses are stimulated. Utilizing the items in the
box memories are triggered for them. That memory retrieval initiates positive
“win win” communication with the client. Another component
which we always include is music. Music stimulates memory retrieval. Music
is the last sensory stimulation component that someone with dementia tends to lose.
