What is SimpleC?
SimpleC is an electronic storyboard and drug free, memory stimulation system that uses touch-screen monitors that are available to each resident to deliver Music, Time, Place and Reminiscence Therapy. SimpleC was developed through years of research by top-tiered institutions, including the Copper Ridge Institute, Emory University, Georgia Tech and Georgia State University.
SimpleC improves the functioning and quality of life for individuals with dementia or other forms of cognitive impairment, through the use of non-drug interventions and technology. SimpleC was developed specifically to aid seniors who are experiencing memory disabilities.
The program is divided into three stages:
In the initial step, medical caregivers identify individual needs based on resident, family and caregiver interviews. The resident’s appetite, energy level, sleep quality, hydration, mood, medications and daily living activities are also documented.
Next, photos, songs and voices from the residents own life history are gathered and interwoven into the treatment process to aid the resident in retrieving life’s memories.
The final step is customizing the therapy schedule for each resident, which can be provided on-demand or scheduled to start automatically according to the resident’s personal care schedule.
