Meriatrics provides companionship and activity services for older adults, including those in residential, medical or rehabilitative care. We also offer group entertainment for nursing homes, assisted living residences, hospitals and senior organizations.
Our business model is shaped by the growing body of evidence that highlights the importance of bridging the gap between health/medical care and social/emotional care, for improved outcomes and increased life satisfaction.
Our services are based on three core principles for enhancing quality of life: engagement, enjoyment and enrichment, customized to personal interests and inspiring reconnection to a sense of joy, well-being and zest for life.
From Geriatrics to Meriatrics ...
Traditional geriatric (and medical) models of care focus primarily on physical, medical and personal care needs.
But, social, emotional and/or spiritual needs are now known to be just as critical for better health, positive aging and a general sense of well-being.
Connecting socially, having fun and learning new things are not only vital -- they make life worth living.
Meriatrics adds technicolor to life!
DID YOU KNOW...?
Loneliness, social isolation and limited cognitive stimulation come at great risk to one's health.
As importantly, play and playfulness in later life "improve cognitive, emotional, social, psychological functioning and healthy aging overall". So, fun isn't just for kids anymore! And, Meriatrics is answering the call!
For nursing homes, assisted living residences and seniors organizations!
