What is SPARK!?

An individualized, home/facility-delivered set of activities designed to facilitate creativity and engagement, and to maximize cognitive abilities in fun and challenging ways. Building on Montessori principles, as well as evidenced-based research, our SPARK! Activities Curator partners with your family to uncover the abandoned or forgotten passions within your loved one’s heart.

What is brainSPARK!?

Building on the success and creativity of SPARK!, brainSPARK! also offers customized programs geared towards clients who may struggle with memory and cognition. A certified dementia brainSPARK! manager assesses your loved one to identify appropriate-level relaxing engagement activities that maximize brain health in enjoyable ways.

Is it possible for my loved one to have both types of activities?

The assessment process is slightly different for each program, but the activities can be mixed each week. It is totally individualized.
