October 12, 2022

TapRoot Interventions & Solutions, Inc (TapRoot) is expanding its innovative digital platform Ella® into the home care market. Silver Care is a home health care agency located in Norfolk, VA, focusing on dementia-care programming.

With its mission built on trust, Silver Care’s approach to home health care is based on skilled, caring, and well-trained staff.   “We partnered with Ella® because the digital assistant directly supports our caregivers, providing personalized and specific ideas and suggestions to best care for our clients with dementia,” says Erica Jones, Ph.D., CEO/Owner of Silver Care.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, over six million Americans are living with dementia and that number is growing 22% annually. Additionally, more than ever, seniors wish to age in the comfort and familiarity of their home or with a family member. Therefore, home care support will continue to be a valued resource, and why dementia-specific programs are being sought out.

“We’re very excited to partner with Silver Care,” shares Co-Founder Linda Buscemi, Ph.D. “Providing on-demand suggestions to mitigate dementia-related behavioral episodes that support caregivers while being in the home setting is a logical next step for us at TapRoot.”

Ella-at-home is based on the belief that providing a tool for caregivers in the home setting gives greater awareness and education to personalize and leverage behavioral approaches (non-pharmaceutical) and interventions to keep people at home longer. It’s a win-win-win for patients, caregivers, family members, and insurance providers.

Dr. Jones stated, “We believe Ella will set our dementia program apart from all others by being able to provide personal care and giving our caregivers the information at their fingertips is pure innovation and a much-needed resource.”
