The recently revised services are provided by a team of literary authors and editors who visit clients in their homes. As part of the program, caregivers lead clients in a variety of creative writing activities, such as recording an individual’s life story. Through the program, people practice expressing themselves and strengthening their voices by engaging in self-expression, enhancing relationships with others, and improving mental agility.

Other creative activities offered include jewelry making, singing, piano lessons, and virtual travel.
Many 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 offered under “Elder Managed Care” aim to provide the 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.
According to the CDC, it is estimated that around 5.8 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease or an associated condition. Of those, 5.6 million are in the over-65 age group. The center predicts that, by 2060, those numbers will increase to approximately 14 million. While the number of people in this country with Alzheimer’s may seem relatively small when compared with other medical conditions, the cost of caring for them is monumental. According to the Alzheimer Society, it is estimated that Alzheimer’s and other dementias cost more than $700 billion per year in the US alone.
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, Elder Manage Care has noted the discussions surrounding cognitive stimulation. The company’s most recent enhancements are designed to engage the mind of clients 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.
The 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 meet their requirements. So for instance, a writer could offer just one hour of creative conversation if that’s all they need.
