Learning The ROPES for Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment

Learning the ROPES for Living with Mild Cognitive Impairment” is aimed at older adults living in the community experiencing mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and a close family member. The 6 week program focuses on improving cognitive health through lifestyle choices, memory training and psychosocial support.
 
Learning the ROPES was developed by Baycrest and is facilitated by our Registered Social Workers, there is a program fee for the two participants to attend which includes participant workbooks.
 
What is MCI?
MCI refers to cognitive decline, commonly involving memory, that is greater than expected for age but does not significantly reduce independence in carrying out daily activities.
MCI represents risk of future dementia. The overarching goal of Learning the Ropes is to influence this risk by delaying or perhaps even preventing dementia.
