A diagnosis of dementia can be overwhelming for individuals and their families, and can be compounded by a lack of resources for people in the early to mid-stages of the disease. The TalkSpot provides programming to provide support, education, social engangement, intellectual stimulation , and teaching of appropriate types of compensatory strategies. Therapy can make a difference in quality of life and ability to participate in social activities and conversation, with teaching of techniques and strategies to individuals with dementia as well as their families. Upon demand, development of a family support group is possible.
