Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
Currently, over 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimers disease or other forms of dementia (Alzheimers Association Facts and Figures 2012). This number is expected to grow to epidemic proportions in the coming years, multiplying by a factor of three, as baby boomers age. Individuals with dementia often become more inactive and isolated, as their mental and social abilities are affected.
MindStart, founded in 2010, is the only United States company to offer a line of original dementia activities. Their adapted puzzles, games, DVDs, and books aim to provide cognitive stimulation and opportunities for engagement for individuals with dementia and their caregivers.
In addition to their website, MindStart uses social media, including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, to reach people looking for dementia care resources. They now announce the addition of a MindStart Pinterest page.
