Experts believe that mental stimulation can help to prevent cognitive decline, which is of particular interest in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and associated dementias. The enhanced services we offer at “Elder Managed Care” aim to provide our clients with an enjoyable and stimulating activity, while at the same time helping them to document and record their life. In this way, they can also serve as a valuable tool for caregivers to understand the patient’s condition, look back on past events, or simply record their achievements.
5.8 million Americans are thought to have Alzheimer's disease or a related illness, according to the CDC. 5.6 million of them are seniors aged 65 and older. By 2060, the organization projects that those figures will rise to almost 14 million. When compared to other illnesses, the number of people in the country who have Alzheimer's may appear to be relatively low, but the cost of caring for them is enormous. The Alzheimer Society estimates that the annual cost of Alzheimer's and other dementias in the US alone is more than $700 billion.
Given those statistics, it is unsurprising that much attention is now being given to treatment approaches. In addition to the usual tech-based innovations in personal monitoring, we at Elder Manage Care noted the discussions surrounding cognitive stimulation, and our most recent enhancements are designed to engage the mind in the familiarity of their home environment. The goal is to give caregivers a tool that helps seniors retain as much independence as possible while reducing stress on those providing care.
These services can include creative conversation to spark fresh perspective, help with recalling and organizing ideas, writing practice, proofreading, author mentorship, and editing. Clients can also now tailor the services to their requirements. So for instance, a writer could offer just one hour of creative conversation if that’s what they prefer.
