BEHAVIOR-BASED ERGONOMICS THERAPIES (BBET)

Are you looking for structured Alzheimer’s and dementia programming with proven results?

The BBET Program consists of four therapies customized to each individual resident’s interests and capabilities (as a complement to group activities):

• Music Therapy • Video Therapy • Stimulating Therapy • Memory Prop Therapy

Benefits of the BBET Program:

• Therapies are individualized, providing both comfort and appropriate cognitive exercise
• Variety of non-pharmacological options for managing behaviors and engaging residents
• Enhances family visits & interactions
• Resident program reports are available to families at care conferences
• Improves each resident’s quality of life
• Signs of stress are identified by trained staff before behaviors escalate
• Residents are calm for hours after the therapy and often sleep better

The BBET Program has received six national awards:

• 2011 Dorland Health Silver Crown Award for Alzheimer’s Care
• 2011 AMDA Foundation Quality Improvement Award (jointly sponsored by Pfizer)
• 2012 Long-Term Living Leaders of Tomorrow Award
