Benefit Bundle by R.O.S. Therapy Systems

We are committed to supporting the R.O.S. mission, and will be among the company of other valuable senior resources.

The CareGiver Partnership is offering caregiving educational materials and special savings of $70 in doorstep-delivered home healthcare supplies to customers of R.O.S. Therapy Systems, a company dedicated to improving quality of life through entertainment and activities.

The R.O.S. Benefit Bundle combines its kits designed to engage those with dementia, Parkinson's, and various physical and developmental challenges through modular entertainment and activities — with valuable savings offers from partnering organizations. The kit includes a tray with memory game cards, cardholder activity board, dry-erase maze, tic-tac-toe board with pegs, wooden jigsaw puzzle and durable tote bag for easy travel. The savings offers will include coupons, catalogs and information from other national organizations who support R.O.S. founder Scott Silknitter’s mission to improve quality of life.

“We are committed to supporting the R.O.S. mission,” says Lynn Wilson, Founder of The CareGiver Partnership, a national retailer of incontinence products and other home healthcare supplies. “We’ll be among the company of other valuable senior resources, such as Visiting Angels living assistance services and Humana’s My Well-Being online health education services.”

R.O.S. is donating $50 of every Benefit Bundle sold to help fund Alzheimer’s research and support programs. In addition to therapy systems and bundle packages, the R.O.S. web site offers tips for engaging those with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and developmental challenges. Silknitter says the therapy systems offer the following benefits:

  •     Bring families together for meaningful activities, creating positive emotional connections and helping patients maintain functional motor skills.
  •     Promote self-confidence. Completing puzzles and games can promote self-confidence, encourage social interaction, and stimulate cognitive and fine motor skills.
  •     Utilize muscles. People with limited mobility can benefit from participating in activities that allow them to use their remaining strengths.

Silknitter created R.O.S. Therapy Systems in Greensboro, N.C., when his father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and dementia. “There were several products on the market, but they were either too small to use or looked like they were designed for children,” says Silknitter. “None had multiple options to prevent the boredom that eventually comes from doing the same activity over and over again. Thus, R.O.S. Play Therapy was born.”

After consulting physical therapists, gerontologists and activity directors, Silknitter began producing the play systems for others, and they’re now sold to consumers, caregivers and senior care organizations.
