Virtual Activities Available for Seniors with Dementia and Their Caregivers

dementia day care covid
We are delivering no-cost virtual dementia services so that adults 50+ and their caregivers can feel less isolated.  The support includes social stimulation, engaging experiences, case management and teletherapy.  Many of the participants are part of My Second Home, our dementia adult day care that has been closed since March to safeguard our vulnerable participants, particularly those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

 

Virtual Dementia Support for Seniors

The online groups meet about 4-6 times per week via Zoom and include music, trivia, crafts, crosswords and other topics of interest to the participants. Seniors will have opportunities to socialize with children from Mount Kisco Child Care Center on the virtual group meetings. In addition to the groups, the families receive weekly (or as needed) phone check-ins with our social workers.  The social workers act as case managers if the family needs assistance and they often make referrals to other FSW programs for support as needed.

 

Support For Caregivers of Seniors with Dementia

A support group for the participants’ caregivers typically runs on Fridays at 4:00 PM.

 

All of the groups are free of charge. Please contact us if you or someone you know would like to participate.
