The Watermark at East Hill welcomes the Audubon Center at Bent of the River. With support from the Toyota TogetherGreen program and the TransCon Family of Homes, Randy Griffin, Dementia Care Specialist, and Audubon employee Ken Elkins developed “Bird Tales” a dynamic, unique, and low cost therapeutic program that brings the natural outdoor world of birds to people living with dementia.
Bird Tales was created by Randy Griffin, Dementia Care Specialist as an easy-to-implement therapeutic program that uses multisensory stimulation and the natural outdoor world of birds to help people living with dementia interact with their environment and share a meaningful experience with others. Observing birds through sight, sound, smell and touch can encourage staff and family interactions even in elders with advanced dementia, and lift their mood for the rest of the day!
