Baycrest has developed a number of unique interventions and technologies that will enable therapists to make a difference in their clients’ lives. Baycrest is developing programs to allow therapists to be trained and supported in the delivery of these interventions. The latest science in aging underlie all of our programs and by using these interventions, therapists will benefit in their practice from the ongoing research at Baycrest.
Some examples of the interventions we are working on:
Training For Older Adults Workshop - In partnership with the Certified Professional Trainers Network (CPTN), Baycrest has developed a program to teach personal trainers how to accommodate the special needs of older adults.
Baycrest Advanced Geriatric Life Support Training - A combination of survival manuals and scenario-based training courses that are designed to assist physicians in the management of common acute, chronic, and palliative presentations in elderly patients.
Caring for Others - A web-based program that helps organizations provide support and value to an often overlooked ally in improved patient outcomes: the caregiver.
Memory Link Program - Memory-Link taps into preserved memory systems to teach amnesic individuals the skill sets necessary to utilize electronic memory-aids.
Cognitive Rehabilitation Program - A series of empirically validated cognitive training protocols that can maximize cognitive potential. CRP includes memory and psychosocial modules.
Goal Management Training - Executive functions are responsible for the control, direction, and regulation of cognitive and mental processes. Goal Management Training (GMT) provides clinicians with a validated, structured program for rehabilitation of executive functions.
Memory and Aging Program - The Memory and Aging Program is aimed at people of retirement age or older who are interested in learning about memory changes that normally occur with age and strategies to improve their everyday memory performance. This workshop provides clinicians with the necessary background information and experience to deliver an evidence-based memory intervention to groups of older adults experiencing normal age-related memory changes.
