GTX’s SmartSole were proudly displayed this past Saturday at the Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Center Town Square®, the nation’s first immersive reminiscence therapy day center for people with dementia. The event gathered an array of San Diego innovators in the dementia care space and was open to both industry professionals and family caregivers.
This was the first event of its kind held at the new center that opened this past August. Mindy Baker, PhD, Director of Education at the Glenner Centers, the organization that founded the innovative Town Square®, spoke about the benefits of reminiscence therapy for people with dementia. The entirety of Town Square® is designed to replicate a 1950s small town in an effort to facilitate reminiscence.
“The SmartSole is a GPS wearable tracking technology that helps to reduce the incidence of loved ones with dementia becoming lost due to dangerous wandering,” stated Lisa D. Tyburski, Chief Marketing Officer of George G. Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Centers, Inc.® | Town Square®
