Today marks a special day for Together Senior Health. I am excited to announce the launch of our new enterprise offering for Medicare Advantage health insurance plans, home health agencies, and healthcare organizations that share our commitment to reducing the impact of cognitive decline.
Most of us have someone in our lives who has been affected by Alzheimer's or another form of dementia, so when I first learned of the benefits of integrative programs on cognitive health from my co-founder and our Chief Science Advisor, Dr. Deborah Barnes, I was both shocked and hopeful. Sadly, millions of dollars and years of public and private research have been spent in unsuccessful pursuit of a pharmacological cure for Alzheimer’s.
It bothers me that these human-centric, non-drug solutions have gone relatively unrecognized by the healthcare community. Perhaps it is due to our collective desire for a quick and easy solution or possibly based on myths about older adults’ ability to use technology. Whatever the reason for previous lack of interest in integrative health and digital interventions, now is the time to start paying attention.
Most older adults now have technology in their lives and we can engage with people about their cognitive health in new ways – we saw this during the pandemic. Building on Dr. Barnes’s research with our passionate instructors and participant feedback, Together has created a new, scalable digital solution with the ability to positively impact the lives of millions more people living with cognitive decline.
We at Together, with our partners at Redesign Health, are looking for opportunities to bring our win-win-win solution to as many people with dementia and their families as possible. We are excited to officially launch Together Senior Health and with our commercial partners we can:
- Help people with Alzheimer’s or dementia to remain healthy and independent
- Help caregivers support their loved ones and stay healthy themselves, and
- Help Medicare Advantage Plans and Home Care Agencies provide low-cost and high-impact ways to connect with and manage healthcare expenses for their members.
We invite you to join the new movement in cognitive health.
Stay Healthy. Stay Independent. Stay Together.
Cynthia Benjamin, CEO, and Co-Founder of Together Senior Health
