COPE

COPE is an evidence-based program that can help individuals living with dementia maintain and improve their quality of life and help their care partners better manage daily care challenges and reduce their own upset and distress. The program addresses the unmet needs of families, providing individualized, targeted strategies to make life better. Through its assessment approach, provision of education and specific skills, it helps families manage common clinical symptoms of dementia such as functional dependence, behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia and caregiver distress. COPE is designed for persons living at home with any form of dementia, who have a care partner, and are experiencing deteriorating quality of life. Home sessions are conducted by nurses and occupational therapists trained in the COPE program and number of sessions may vary based on payment model and family need.
