It’s clear that older adults living with memory loss are being left out of the equation when it comes to best care outcomes. Those that live with dementia and Alzheimer’s are at higher fall risk and likelihood of hospitalization, which also drives caregiver burden. “The population of persons living with dementia is diverse with respect to needs for care and resources. To increase efficiency and contain costs, services and payments must be designed to meet the care needs of all persons in the population.”
The article, Payment for Comprehensive Dementia Care: Five Key Recommendations, breaks down dementia care and payment recommendations based on current evidence. At Together Senior Health, we applaud these authors and endorse their position that something has to be done about the challenges that face our ever-growing senior population. To play our part in addressing this problem, we offer a proven solution that can slow cognitive decline while also reducing costs for health care plans and their members. Our online digital therapeutic reaches all populations regardless of socioeconomic status, supports individuals with varying degrees of cognitive decline and creates community for those impacted by this disease.
