Frequently Asked Questions
Learn more about SAIDO and how it benefits those living with dementia.
Does SAIDO work?
Simply put, SAIDO Learning often helps those living with dementia, but the results are as individual as each resident. SAIDO meets people where they are.
SAIDO’s outcomes are based on the best available current research. In fact, 70% of those who actively use SAIDO experience improvement, while families and staff report even better results.Close
What are the benefits of SAIDO?
Visit a SAIDO community and you’ll quickly see how SAIDO is enlivening residents. Social interactions reduce the isolation felt by so many individuals in a memory care setting. People who engage in SAIDO Learning programs are encouraged to participate more fully in activities of daily living. SAIDO offers a truly personalized resident experience, enriches connections with family and loved ones, and enhances professional development for staff.Close
Will SAIDO work for all levels of care?
Because SAIDO is personalized, it can be targeted to the appropriate level for individuals at all levels of dementia. Residents can become involved with SAIDO from both sides (as learners or supporters).Close
Why choose SAIDO?
SAIDO provides intentional engagement versus the typical “activities” found in memory care communities. The goal is to provide the best quality of life and level of achievement for each resident.
For communities, SAIDO is a unique marketing differentiator that can serve as the foundation of your memory care programming or complement existing programs. The result is culture building and engagement at every level of the organization.Close
