Several rooms at A.G. Rhodes of Cobb have been equipped with the SimpleC Companion™ technology, an intuitive touch-screen application that promotes memory, engagement and better communication for elders.
This technology is designed to support elders at all levels of cognitive abilities and is especially beneficial for those living with dementia. Elders can use the device independently, or with a care partner or family member.
Some capabilities include:
“As we strive to provide more person-directed care, we must rely on innovative approaches and technology,” said Angela Daugherty, Administrator of A.G. Rhodes’ Cobb home. “This device is just one more tool that will help us tailor our care delivery to meet individual needs of our elders, specifically those living with dementia.”
This technology is made possible by Civil Money Penalty (CMP) funds. CMP is a federal national grant to support and further expand the National Partnership to Improve Dementia Care in Nursing Homes, an initiative of The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
