home-care-assistance-logoThe in-home care provider for seniors in the U.S. and Canada, Home Care Assistance of Toronto, is organizing an event to launch its Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM) in Ontario. The proprietary science-based cognitive stimulation program, designed to be administrated in patients’ homes, will be discussed by the owner of the company, Steve Darley, on Thursday, January 29, 2015 at the Home Care Assistance office in Toronto, Ontario.

The Cognitive Therapeutics Method is a novel approach designed to improve the health of the brain. The therapeutic action of CTM targets memory, executive functioning, attention, language and visual-spatial perception, the five primary cognitive domains, in addition to other non-cognitive abilities commonly treated in a clinical environment.

CTM is not only effective in helping the elderly and those suffering from dementia in the improvement of cognitive functions, but is also a convenient approach to therapy as it can be done in the convenience of one’s own home, which is more comfortable and preferable for the patients, as explained by the company in a press release. The event, where Steve Darley, as well as the iPod Project Coordinator at the Alzheimer’s Society Toronto, Sandra McCurbin, will be present, will be dedicated to providing information on this therapeutic approach.

“We are thrilled to be hosting such an informative and exciting event,” said Steve Darley. “We will be giving a live presentation of various activities that make up the Cognitive Therapeutics Method program and look forward to the attendee feedback. We are also honoured to have Sandra McCurbin from the Alzheimer’s Society presenting on the Music and Memory iPod Project and sharing information about the current impact that Alzheimer’s has on Canadian’s as well as in the future.”

Home Care Assistance has been dedicated to providing comfort and health care to senior patients both in the U.S. and in Canada, in order to improve quality of life despite aging. The main purpose of the company is to enable senior patients to have an happier and healthier life while staying in their homes. The informational event can be attended by anyone interested. Norma Armas Lewis will be happy to answer any of your questions and clarifications through [email protected] until January 19th.
