As a result of the pandemic, seniors now face not only risks to their health but also severe loneliness, along with startling declines in cognitive and physical ability. Those issues prompted Complete Care, a New Jersey senior living provider with nearly 20 locations and thousands of residents, to search desperately for a solution. It found a solution half a world away, in the startup nation, Israel.
Obie, a cutting-edge interactive projector tech company, adapted its platform, with the help of neuroscientists, to provide specially designed gaming experiences to train seniors’ cognitive abilities and encourage social interaction. The results have been astounding and thousands of local seniors have been turned into gamers virtually overnight. For more information, go to ObieForSeniors.com.
