CogworxABC Activity Program
Provides meaningful opportunities for older adults to remain mentally vibrant and physically active for as long as possible.
Most activity professionals require a proven weekly activity program that they can offer their participants. They need easy-to-follow activities that are not only challenging and fun but also suitable for both one-on-one or group participation. If that describes what you’ve been searching for, then CogworxABC activity program is exactly what you need!
A key component of any successful program is in the preparation. With the CogworxABC activity program, you get the benefits of preparation but without the lengthy time requirements. You will not need any additional training or certifications to facilitate any of the fully customizable CogworxABC activity tracks. By utilizing both the Cognition and Focus; Focus and Balance & Cognition tracks, you can adapt components from each to create a plan that is tailored to the functioning levels of your participants. Purposeful activities in your facility are important in keeping your residents engaged, mindful, and alert. We believe more engagement means more health and happiness!
While there is a place for virtual classes, the social interaction with a facilitator has more benefits over a virtual class. It has long been shown that there is a strong correlation between social interaction and the health and well-being among older adults.
Wouldn’t it be great if you were able to tell prospective residents and their families that your facility has a ‘brains and balance’ class as part of its activity calendar? Imagine highlighting an activity program within your marketing as part of your facilities services. A program that compliments your quality-of-life initiatives without putting a strain on your budget. An inexpensive and affordable resource for your Activity and Life Enrichment staff.
Utilizing the CogworxABC activity program empowers your Life Enrichment Manager or Activities Director to create a more meaningful activity calendar. We have long advocated the necessity of progressing from the diversionary mainstays of an activity program – what we all know as “the 3 B’s: bingo, Bible, and birthdays”, to adding more purposeful activities.
Having your activity personnel facilitate the CogworxABC session provides a more cost-effective option than contracting services. It has also become a more necessary option during times of an emergency shutdown to prevent the spread of illnesses.
