SYNERGY HomeCare Partners With Ageless Innovation To Support Clients Experiencing Social Isolation And Cognitive Decline

December 02, 2021 // Franchising.com // Gilbert, Ariz. - SYNERGY® HomeCare has announced a partnership with Ageless Innovation to offer Joy for All Companion Pets to combat social isolation and cognitive decline among older adults. SYNERGY HomeCare used the backdrop of November’s National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month to launch a pilot with franchisees involving the use of companion animatronic cats and dogs for individuals experiencing social isolation, memory loss or cognitive decline.

Developed with extensive input from older adults, Joy for All Companion Pets look, sound and feel like real pets – without the responsibilities of pet ownership. Multiple clinical studies have shown that Joy for All Companion Pets enhance the well-being, sense of purpose and quality of life of individuals living with dementia. They have also helped alleviate agitation, social isolation, depression and expressions of sadness among older adults.

The partnership with Ageless Innovation is a component of SYNERGY HomeCare’s memory care program that supports clients living with Alzheimer’s or related dementias.

“Loneliness during the aging process has been an issue faced by older adults for many years but has been exacerbated throughout the pandemic,” said Rich Paul, Chief Partner Officer of SYNERGY HomeCare. “We have also seen an uptick in clients with dementia and memory-related concerns and we continue to provide our franchisees with best-in-class resources to assist in their client’s care. Ageless Innovation’s animatronic pets can play a role in improving cognitive decline, lifting spirits and helping to remind aging adults of fond memories they may have shared with their pets.”

“Like SYNERGY HomeCare, part of our mission at Ageless Innovation is to provide older adults with a sense of comfort and companionship,” said Ted Fischer, CEO and Co-Founder of Ageless Innovation. “We recognize that caregivers across the globe work tirelessly to do the same for their clients and family members each and every day, and we hope the use of our Joy for All Companion Pets can aid in that heroic effort.”

Ageless Innovation was founded in 2018 by a team of former Hasbro employees who aimed to promote the Joy for All brand that provides joy, fun, play and comfort to the older adult market, while focusing on improving quality of life for aging loved ones, their families and caregivers.
