Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
Home Care Assistance – Greater Toronto (http://www.GreaterTorontoHomeCare.ca), the area’s leading provider of non-medical, in-home senior care, is announcing the release of its guide to non-pharmaceutical neurocognitive care.
Titled The Cognitive Therapeutic Method: Non-Pharmacological Approaches to Slowing the Cognitive and Functional Decline, the book is the first from a team of cognitive experts and aims to be a comprehensive guide to understanding the many causes of neurocognitive disorder. It details the role of non-pharmacological interventions in slowing cognitive and functional decline typically associated to seniors.
“We are so confident that this book will have a significant impact to neurocognitive care and literature on aging,” says Rick Heinz, owner of Home Care Assistance – Greater Toronto. “Our experts, led by Dr. Samuel T. Gontkovsky, executive director of research and development, really put a lot of thought and research into this book. The result is a comprehensive guide that can be applied by our caregivers.”
Neurocognitive disorder, formerly known as dementia, can be anything from Parkinson’s disease to Alzheimer’s disease and has been acknowledged as one of the most difficult health challenges of the 21st century. An enormous amount of research has been conducted on this disorder; with this guide, Heinz notes that Home Care Assistance – Greater Toronto has now added its voice to the discussion.
“What really inspired us to write this guide were the requests from patients and their family members for more knowledge and understanding about this disorder,” he adds. “If we could provide them with information that can help them through elder care in any way, then we feel we’ve made a contribution.”
“The excitement over this book does seem to be its application potential, as over 90% of seniors choose to carry out their lives at home rather than a clinic, where studies like these would typically be reserved,” Heinz concludes. “But Home Care Assistance – Greater Toronto teaches the Cognitive Therapeutics Method to its caregivers, who then apply it one-on-one with the seniors in their care. The fact that seniors can receive this level of treatment within their own homes is a huge advantage and we’re happy to be leaders in this field of research and application.”
