People who have benefited from the Thoughtful Engagement® program include persons with dementia or developmental or physical disabilities. Persons with mental illness. Also people having difficulties with depression, anxiety, or life transitions, such as widows or new residents at long-term care facilities.

Your clients’ individual interests and goals come alive when arrangements are managed so that every activity can be enjoyed without worry. The program moves beyond traditional “senior activities” to include creative, thoughtful, and entertaining engagement opportunities that are specially tailored to the individual. From the whimsical to the practical, you learn how to create safe yet unusual activities that reignite joy for the client and relief for their families.

What Our Clients Say
Tina Buchanan, CEO, MSW, ALCM
“Before I invested in the Thoughtful Engagement Program, I was struggling to come up with a creative solution for our isolated clients. I knew that the isolation and loss of sense of purpose was leading to physical and mental health decline. When I implemented the Thoughtful Engagement Program into me business I watched the light come over our clients faces again and watched them begin to live again. Thank you Crystal for being so passionate about bringing the joy back to our elders.”
