Ottawa, Ontario, Canada – July 2015
Canadian home care company provides innovative approach in the fight against cognitive decline
Retire-At-Home Services is pleased to announce its partnership with Fit Minds, an Ottawa-based company specializing in cognitive stimulation therapy geared towards those living with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Science proves that dementia risk can be reduced by building a brain active lifestyle. Fit Minds programs use cognitive stimulation therapy coupled with lifestyle changes, which can be used to stabilize or even improve the cognitive functioning of individuals living with dementia and mild Alzheimer’s disease.
To provide this opportunity to their clients, Retire-At-Home is adopting Fit Minds’ highly innovative approach to brain fitness programming. It is a holistic approach to brain health rather than one simply focusing on memory. The personalized program is delivered exclusively by certified Fit Minds® Cognitive Coaches in a social setting using human interaction.
“We’re very excited to be able to offer an interactive brain fitness program to our clients and their families” says Sheri Cayouette, Vice President Field Operations. “When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia, it is devastating. Thankfully, we now have non-pharmacological methods to help improve mental acuity and overall emotional wellbeing of all those affected by the diagnosis.”
