Arbor Terrace Highland Park, a prominent memory care community, has finally partnered with Eugeria to introduce an innovative dementia technology known as the Tovertafel, setting a new standard for memory care in Chicago. This partnership marks a significant milestone for the three Arbor communities in the city, making them the first to adopt this innovative dementia care tool.
The Tovertafel is a remarkable care system that projects interactive and playful light animations, transforming any surface into an engaging game. Unlike other products, this technology was co-designed with inputs from older adults with dementia, their families, healthcare professionals, and university researchers, ensuring it caters to the unique needs of its users. The Tovertafel epitomizes the concept of “warm technology,” placing vulnerable individuals at the center of its design.
With the implementation of this cutting-edge technology, Arbor Terrace Highland Park has presented its unwavering commitment to improving residents’ lives and delivering top-tier care. Care staff and family members can utilize the system to meaningfully engage with residents, fostering physical activity, social interaction, and reducing restlessness and anxiety. The technology’s immersive games have been meticulously crafted through years of proprietary research, guaranteeing a tailored and enriching experience for each individual.
Brandi Blizzard, Vice President of Engagement at The Arbor Company, which manages Arbor Terrace, expressed enthusiasm for being at the forefront of dementia care technology in Chicago.
“We believe that by integrating this innovative system into our daily operations, we can significantly improve the lives of our residents living with dementia. This technology enables us to provide personalized care, enhance their well-being, and create a safe and nurturing environment,” einnews.com reported Blizzard as saying.
