Recorded on: 10/18/2018

Since September 2017, Responsive Health Management (RHM) in Toronto has been working in collaboration with Linked Senior with generous funding from the Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation (CABHI) through the Baycrest Foundation. CABHI is a solution accelerator, helping to drive innovation in the aging and brain health sector. Webinar participants will hear from Marion Godoy and Abiola Awosanya of RHM about preliminary study results, explore a number of best practices used by RHM and their teams at the research sites, and understand what the future of resident engagement may hold.

This research project is part of CABHI’s Industry Innovation Partnership Program (I2P2). Analysis of the research findings have been conducted by Ethan McMahan and Dr. Rob Winningham of Western Oregon University in order to determine if residents using Linked Senior have better health outcomes than those who do not and more broadly how using therapeutic engagement techniques can decrease depression and other behaviors associated with dementia.
