Thoughtful Engagement Specialist
Brandywine Elder Care Management
A Thoughtful Engagement Specialist comes to the home and interviews your loved one. They will separately interview you and possibly other family members by Zoom, telephone, or in person. Your specialist will thoughtfully piece together insights from the interviews and develop fun and engaging activities tailored to your relative’s interests.
From whimsical to active, indoors or out, cultural or practical, our personalized activities emphasize strengths and accommodate all levels of mobility, cognition, memory, and physical or mental health. Your loved one gets one-on-one attention and a strong social connection, while you get a break.
Start with a once-a-week visit and watch how the world opens up for the person you care for.
“Everyone deserves joy. Sometimes they just need help finding it.”
—Crystal Littlejohn, Founder of Thoughtful Engagement®
We specialize in working with people who have Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or other neurological conditions. We also work with those who are isolated, depressed, or anxious, or whose world has simply gotten smaller. Thoughtful Engagement is available for older adults living alone or with others. It can even serve as an individualized enrichment activity for those in assisted living or a memory care unit.
Let our Thoughtful Engagement program reignite joy for your loved one—Relief for you!
Here are just a few of the ways Thoughtful Engagement has helped other families who were worried about an aging loved one:
Diane’s son, Joe, was diagnosed in his twenties with paranoid schizophrenia. At fifty he was living in a group home. He was generally stable but spent most of his time smoking and alone. Diane, now in her seventies, was experiencing health challenges. She worried about what would happen to Joe when she was gone.Read More
When Peggy’s husband died, she found it very difficult to go out in the world without him. She even quit going to church because it was too painful when people asked how she was doing. Her daughter, Debbie, lived far away and was extremely concerned because her mother had now lost not only her husband, but also her spiritual and social community.Read More
Roberto was a confirmed bachelor and beloved uncle to his many nieces and nephews. Always the life of the party at family barbeques, he had begun to withdraw. He no longer hung out with his buddies, and he was even losing weight. The family wasn’t sure what to do.Read More
James, a long distance son, was worried about his mother’s isolation and lack of mental stimulation following a series of minor strokes. Ruth had been a tenured professor of Art History, but had retreated since her husband’s death. She was becoming so withdrawn, it was difficult for James to have conversations with her on the phone.Read More
Reiko had always been a happy, talkative person. But four months after moving into an assisted living community, the staff confirmed that Reiko spent most of her time in her room. Her daughter, Sue, was concerned. This wasn’t like her mother. Sue also felt guilty because she had encouraged the move.Read More
