Artificial Intelligence Enriches Lives of Elderly Patients in the Digital Age

BOSTON, Mass., May 30, 2018 – Making the right long-term care decision for
a loved one is a challenging experience. Nearly 27 million people will need a
long-term care solution by 2050, according to the Department of Health and
Human Services and the Department of Labor. Many of these individuals
experience cognitive deficits. Caregivers are often at a loss about how
exactly to support patients’ cognitive training.

Mobile App Breaks New Ground for Seniors

Enter Constant Therapy, a digital speech, language and cognitive exercise
program that has been recognized by the American Stroke Association and AARP.
This program allows users to conveniently access brain exercises from their
phone or tablet while at home or in a healthcare facility. Today, the company
is partnering with FirstLight Home Care to bring its software to non-medical
caregivers for the first time.

The Boston-area digital health brand is particularly well versed with the
elderly population as its median user is 64 years old. App users have
completed more than 65 million brain exercises—creating one of the
world’s largest health and wellness database of speech, language and
cognitive exercises.

“Organizations are increasingly looking for the right activities to enrich
the quality of elderly homebound clients’ lives. We’re excited to be
using AI to enable ‘digital aging in place’ with FirstLight, since close
to 90 percent of adults aged 65 and older prefer aging in their homes. We can
facilitate a deeper connection between seniors and their non-medical
caregivers,” said Veera Anantha, The Learning Corp. founder and creator of
Constant Therapy.

Artificial Intelligence Helps to Standardize Elder Homecare

FirstLight Home Care facilities have become early adopters of the Constant
Therapy digital platform—powered by its proprietary NeuroPerformance

Constant Therapy’s real-time advanced analytics mine global user
performance data, scientific research, and each patient’s performance
history to automatically recommend optimal tasks for each individual—and
keep aging users engaged.

Non-medical caregivers can use Constant Therapy to provide clients with
opportunities to practice memory, language and cognitive tasks from the
convenience of a tablet or smartphone. Patients who need in-home support
often struggle with dementia and cognitive declines associated with aging.

“With Constant Therapy, we are pleased to offer digital exercises to our
clients. Many of our offices have reported that their clients are less
anxious and more engaged as a result of using the Constant Therapy app to
practice cognitive exercises. I’m pleased that the augmented AI provided by
the app enables our clients to get personalized care at home,” said Devin
Bevis, Co-Founder and Executive Director, Franchise Services, FirstLight Home
