Ambient Activity to Manage Responsive Behaviour in Long Term Care

 Thursday, December 7, 2017

CABHI Innovation Space; 9:30 am – Networking; 10:00 am Start

Ambient Activity Technologies (AAT), in association with the University of Toronto, has developed a non-pharmaceutical approach to managing responsive behaviors (e.g, hitting, screaming) among persons living with moderate to severe levels of dementia in long-term care (LTC) facilities. AAT augments the LTC environment by providing ambient (available in the environment for easy access) activity experiences that are personalized, appropriate and meaningful to residents.

AAT is designed to promote independence, reinforce a sense of ‘self’ in individuals living with dementia, and to enhance a sense of well-being in residents, their family members and LTC staff. Learn how AAT interventions affect responsive behaviours, and impact well-being and quality of life in residents, staff and family.
