More than $7.6 million has been announced to support the development and validation testing of 53 new innovations seeking to help dementia patients and their caregivers, the Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation (CABHI) announced recently. Part of the funding is for a localized area alert system for missing persons with dementia, assessment of the use of smart-home technologies to support caregivers and older adults at home with dementia, and an augmentative and alternative communication system designed to replace spoken communication for non-verbal individuals. Led by Baycrest Health Sciences, CABHI has supported the acceleration of healthcare and technology-based innovations by point-of-care staff, researchers and companies. The projects got support from CABHI’s programs, including the Spark Program, the Industry Innovation Partnership Program, and the Researcher-Clinician Partnership Program. CABHI emerged out of the largest investment in brain health and aging in Canadian history. Formed in 2015, it is a collaboration of health care, science, industry, not-for-profit and government partners whose aim is to help improve quality of life for the world’s aging population. The home of CABHI is the Univ of Toronto-affiliated Baycrest, which is globally recognized in geriatric residential living, healthcare, research, innovation and education.
