Increasing Engagement, Satisfaction, Physical Performance and Team Efficiencies through Social Engagement Technology
The LeadingAge CAST Tech Time Newsletter, February 2019
Recognizing the increased prevalence of cognitive impairment and dementia in persons served, the Presbyterian SeniorCare Network rehabilitation team sought to further understand how they could provide the most efficacious treatments to individuals living with dementia. As part of the exploration, clinicians were asked to identify what they believed to be the primary barrier to effective treatment in individuals living with dementia, and 43% reported it to be limited engagement and communication during treatment sessions. Implementation of iN2L systems in the rehabilitation department was aimed at maximizing therapist capacities to engage residents in a meaningful way so that they can provide efficacious levels of intervention.
