Simplifying Dementia Care: A Goal for Society
Our society aims to enhance the personal independence of those with dementia while reducing disability and comorbidities.
However, achieving this goal is complicated by the involvement of various disciplines, including medicine, nursing, research, financing, regulation, and administration. Unfortunately, these fields often struggle with communication and fail to collaborate effectively.
To make matters worse, new findings are often difficult to access and understand, limiting opportunities for broader awareness. But simplifying dementia care is vital, and we must find quality, effective, and coordinated care models to make it happen.
Brain Watch Coalition Selects DigiCARE Realized for Demonstration in the Detection of Unrecognized Cognitive Impairment, Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders

Accelerating the Accuracy, Adoption, and Access of Clinical Decision Intelligence Applications for Better Brain Health
The current care cost estimates for those with dementia and other cognitive impairments will reach US $1 trillion globally by 2025. Yet many healthcare systems lack specialized personnel, infrastructure, and diagnostic capabilities that lead to the timely identification of patients with cognitive impairment and dementia. Several new intervention options exist for Alzheimer’s disease; however, healthcare systems may…

Instead, it takes its time, rattling cupboards and banging on windows, giving plenty of warning signs that you’re at risk of being robbed. More than 55 million people worldwide live with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, with many…
