Person-centered, 24/ 7 dementia & Alzheimer’s care program that increases quality of life for your residents and staff.

Tobin is the exclusive provider of two interdisciplinary programs impacting long-term care facilities with a variety of behavioral challenges.

Tobin & Associates is the exclusive provider of interdisciplinary programs developed by miVision, LLC — Rhythm of the Day©, a dementia-focused program, and Lifebridge©, a behavior management program that is focused on managing and decreasing unwanted behaviors amongst both traditional and younger, more challenging residents. In addition to managing a wide variety of behavioral issues, the Lifebridge© program also assists facilities in gaining compliance with Phase 3 ROPs.

Rhythm of the Day© offers residents a quality of life not traditionally experienced in the general long-term care setting.

Rhythm of the Day©, by miVision, LLC, offers calmness and engagement throughout the day results in resident’s enjoyment and contentment. The Rhythm of the Day© program utilizes resident’s remaining cognitive abilities to focus on their highest practicable function without focusing on lost abilities. These techniques of stimulating emotional memory create a setting of peace and diffuse behaviors. Residents enhance their functionality and their psychosocial skills and simply live a better life. Rhythm of the Day© provides a ‘rhythm’ for staff, residents and families—simplifying and normalizing the day for everyone.

As part of Ohio’s nursing home quality initiative, each licensed nursing home in the state must participate every two years in at least one quality improvement project approved by the Ohio Department of Aging. Rhythm of the Day© is a quality improvement project approved by the Ohio Department of Aging.

“The Rhythm of the Day© program is by far the most successful program I’ve seen – in my 25 years as a long-term care social worker – that makes a difference in the day-to-day lives of the residents involved. Our residents had fewer incidents of agitation and aggressive behaviors, better sleep patterns, and increased positive participation in social activities.

“I highly recommend Rhythm of the Day© and Lifebridge©!”

KimberLee Kinney, LSW, BSSW
