The Holmstad Joins in National Research Trial to Study Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy


Byline: Wendy Dalessandro

The Holmstad in Batavia has been selected to collaborate with a physician from the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, a Ph.D. nurse researcher from Case Western Reserve University, and Eliza Jennings, a nationally recognized nonprofit leader in aging services in Cleveland, Ohio.

"SAIDO Learning was shown to improve symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias in research trials conducted in Japan, as well as in the United States in 2011 at Eliza Jennings in Cleveland, Ohio," said Amanda Gosnell, executive director. "This new research trial will be national in scope. Residents from The Holmstad will participate for six months and the entire trial will last one year.
