With your help, we’re incubating a new project to connect people living with dementia and their care partners with experienced caregivers.
MapHabit™ is a visual mapping system built to promote independence and improve quality of life for individuals living with Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias, their caregivers, and family members. The mobile software provides behavior prompts with customizable picture and keyword visual maps to assist memory-impaired people with accomplishing activities of daily living. The tool provides benefits such as increasing quality of care, improving caregiving staff satisfaction and retention, and offering a hybrid-care model to improve the bottom line while also providing a key competitive advantage.
“CaringKind is the ideal partner for testing the efficacy of our visual mapping project,” said MapHabit CEO, Matt Golden. “Their community of caregivers is so large and engaged, we’ve been able to recruit study participants in a fraction of the time it normally takes.”
“Our partnership with MapHabit may reveal a new, evidence-based strategy for making life easier for care partners and improving the quality of life for the person in their care,” says Eleonora Tornatore-Mikesh. “That’s a win-win for everyone, and it’s why I’m so excited about our partnership with MapHabit.”
Thirty participants will be enrolled in the study, which will take about three months to complete. Stay tuned for results later this summer.
