We develop cognitive therapy software to help dementia sufferers gain more of their life and memory back, one step at a time.

Many studies have been carried out around the subject, more specifically the most recent study “The impact of bilingualism on brain reserve and metabolic connectivity in Alzheimer’s dementia” carried out by Italy’s Vita-Salute San Rafffaele University in Milan and “Bilingualism delays clinical manifestation of Alzheimer’s disease” carried out by Germany’s University of Ghent …
