Together Senior Health Introduces First Integrated Cognitive Health Software
Symptoms of memory loss, Alzheimer's, and dementia can be controlled by using integrated digital therapies and cognitive health platforms.
Fremont, CA: Alzheimer's disease and dementia isn't the same thing. Dementia is an umbrella word popular for various symptoms that affect memory, everyday activities, and communication. The common kind of dementia is Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease is a progressive illness that impairs memory, language, and cognition.
Dementia and Alzheimer's disease may strike anyone at any age, although the risk rises as you become older. Although dementia and Alzheimer's disease are most frequent in those over 65, none is considered a normal component of the aging process.
Together Senior Health, a digital therapeutics and cognitive health firm introduced its evidence-based cognitive health platform to lower the effect of memory loss, Alzheimer's, and dementia in older persons while reducing anxiety in caregivers. The Together Senior Health platform includes movement therapy programs that engage the brain, which is supported by almost a decade of scientific research funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Alzheimer's Association, and other donors based on research conducted with the University of California, San Francisco.
Together Senior Health's modern integrated platform intends to broaden its effect by enabling Medicare plans to deliver more comprehensive cognitive care to their members while expanding on existing services and expediting eligible participants' participation in comprehensive treatment programs.
The platform enhances cognitive health through exercise, bodily awareness, community, psychological well-being, and a feeling of purpose. MOVING Together, one of the platform's distinctive features, combines the finest of professional, evidence-based movement therapy that assists persons living with cognitive impairment in remaining independent while minimizing isolation. MOVING Together teachers help members join and place them in cohorts that gather virtually twice a week for one-hour sessions, promoting movement and activities in small groups that create connection.
"Together Senior Health is addressing the cognitive health of individuals living with dementia, Alzheimer's, or memory loss in a holistic way. We know that this impacts millions of individuals and families around the world, and our goal is to help them stay healthy and independent longer," says Cynthia Benjamin, CEO of Together Senior Health. "Our integrated, human-centric platform takes an innovative approach, applying neuroscience, non-pharmaceutical therapeutics, and behavioral psychology to strengthen cognitive health."
