 Every 3 seconds a person with a cognitive disability is neglected and abused. In fact, by the time you read this short message nearly 10 more individuals with Autism, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or Down syndrome will be victims of neglect and abuse. Our unique behavioral modification program is a solution to this problem. We’ve developed a powerful technology that helps stop the neglect and abuse of those with special needs but that technology doesn’t do anyone any good until it’s in their hands……… and that’s where we need your help.  


 How The Virtual Caregiver Helps


Whether the condition is a disease that occurs later in life that is mentally debilitating or a lifelong disability of being developmentally challenged, there is a common thread: The inability to reach through to the participant in a recognizable manner that they can relate and respond to on a consistent basis which will eventually lead to caregiver burn-out, neglect and abuse. The Virtual Caregiver has been painstakingly and specifically designed and engineered to empower the participant to actively engage in their own care. The program is comprised of a new and patent pending technology called “Audio Choreography” which incorporates music as an actual part of the instruction as rhythmic cueing and not merely background atmosphere. The concept is based on how music can induce a physical response or neuro-connection that can be conditioned over a period of time. By creating these new neuro pathways that are based on response to rhythmic cueing and not merely verbal prompts it helps deliver increased proficiency at these tasks particularly with continued use, rehearsal and conditioning. 


Dealing with Functional Limitations


Due to functional limitations of some participants it may be necessary in the early stages of use with this coaching system to pause at certain times during the program to allow the participant to maintain pace with the directions. It is highly recommended that the program not be paused at the same point with each use and the participant encouraged to keep up with the program. It is also recommended that the video simulation component of the program be viewed by the participant often particularly in the initial phases of use. Although the animated movements are not necessarily identical to the actual procedure performed by the participant, the association between direction and task completion can be attained more proficiently in this manner.

Our mission from Scripture is quite straightforward and calls us to the highest level of purpose and accountability………                                                                  

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?” “The King will reply, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”                                                                                                         –     Matthew 25: 37-40
