“Our goal is to create fun experiences that reach beyond play to enrich the lives of our residents. We believe that with the thoughtful use of technology we can engage those suffering from dementia. The games are designed to stimulate, activate and provide happiness for all of those involved in the caregiving process. The revolutionary software can also create your own games or add personal pictures to existing games to spark memories and create connections.” Said Sue Seegert, President and CEO of Villa St Francis.
The thoughtful use of technology based on scientific research is to create games that are beneficial to residents as well as caregivers and family members. The human experience has been shown to be very effective based on research compilations.
