Meet Buddy: Care.Coach’s Innovative Technology Provides Psychosocial Support for Those with Dementia

October 26, 2021

In today’s episode, Tina and Terri are joined by Dr. Janetta Brown with the Indiana University School of Medicine here to speak with us about Care.Coach, an innovative digital platform that is designed to support people with dementia and their caregivers.

 

Care.Coach platform, and interactive avatars – we’ll talk more about those in a minute - combine human intelligence and compassion with software automation and clinical algorithms to provide 24/7 psychosocial support for older adults. Researchers at universities and clinicians in diverse care settings have validated Care.Coach’s innovative approach in caregiving and its ability to reduce loneliness, improve perceived social support, and drive outcomes — including reducing the need for nursing visits to the home, preventing falls, and mitigating delirium among hospitalized older adults.
