SimpleC Arrives at Woodland Ridge
Woodland Ridge is proud to announce the integration of SimpleC as a tool for helping our residents with advanced dementia. The Meadows, our Memory Care neighborhood, is now completely high-tech with this state-of-the-art therapy.
This product is as simple as a touch screen computer yet complex enough to increase daily activity, meal consumption and even create closer interpersonal connections in residents.
The SimpleC Companion was created about 5 years ago. This product uses audio and visual therapy to help restore memory and assist residents with daily activity. The non-drug therapy is grouped into four categories: reminiscence, music, orientation and trusted voice (SimpleC, 2011).
The Companion has proven results and is currently used in about 10 facilities throughout Georgia, including Emory University’s Wesley Woods Senior Living facility and Woodland Ridge Assisted Living in Smyrna, Georgia.
SimpleC is in the process of collecting research in three areas: late life depression, restorative nursing, and stabilization. Some of the universities collaborating with SimpleC on this research are Emory University, the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University.
