Aging

student working with aging demographicOne notable barrier within the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is a lack of behavioral supports for older adults. Our Aging Team currently works with nursing and assisted living facilities within the greater Marquette area to help provide such services! As individuals age, many might experience a sudden change in their ability to perform daily activities of living, emotional/behavioral challenges, and difficulties remembering. Our Aging Team works with caregivers and clients to assess any concerns and collaborates with them to develop behavior analytic recommendations that best fit the client’s needs. Once recommendations are finalized, all caretakers will be taught how to maintain them after the Team’s involvement has come to a close. Periodic check-ins are included to help ensure success!
