While it’s still early, doctors, caregivers, family members, friends of those affected by these chronic diseases are encouraged by these recent breakthroughs, and new ways of approaching the challenges. Caregivers can act on meaningful insights to adjust therapies, routines and schedules, understand future care needs and, ultimately, deliver more personalized care. There are signs of progress:
- 50+ assisted-living facilities in 10 states are now using SimpleC media-based therapies with impressive and life-improving results
- Many report a 60% decline in dementia-related behavioral symptoms and challenges, including agitation, irritability, depression and resistance to care. Some facilities report a 95% decrease in the use of sedative drugs and antibiotic prescriptions by 30%
- The therapies have also helped mitigate the kind of patient behaviors that affect others, such as verbal and physical aggression.
- Most importantly, 85% of individuals receiving SimpleC therapies at home state that they find comfort and joy in using them.
SimpleC is focused on bringing a sense of comfort to millions of patients and caregivers around the world - and the initial results are encouraging. It’s exciting to see the community join efforts to continue to improve treatment for people with cognitive disorders - along with the millions of "invisible patients."
