COVID-19 has has an outsized impact on older adults who are facing social isolation, many of whom are unfamiliar with online communities and tools. People living with dementia and their families are especially vulnerable.
TOGETHER is offering several MOVING Together classes to bring community and movement into one's home. We'd like to continue serving our COVID participants for FREE but need additional funding to support these groups.
Our initial business funding to date has been from NIH Small Business Research Innovation (SBIR) grants. We have demonstrated that people with cognitive decline can effectively participate in online group movement classes and that there are unique benefits to our specific platform.
Next steps include scaling our platform to bring more programming and innovative technology-based services to older adults concerned with memory loss.
Contributions are appreciated to support our ongoing FREE classes for seniors impacted by COVID.
