Using the Science of Habits to Transform Care
Using the Science of Habits to Transform Care with Matt Golden, CEO & Co-Founder of MapHabit
Neurodegenerative diseases affect millions of people across the world. While there is no cure at the moment there are ways we can improve cognition and reinforce routine habits.
Matt Golden is the CEO and Co-Founder of MapHabit. Having experienced the personal loss of loved ones from Alzheimer's Disease, he is passionate about creating tools to support caregivers and improve the quality of life for our older adults.
MapHabit is an interactive care management, dementia training, and cognitive engagement platform that promotes independence and enhances the quality of life for individuals that need additional cognitive support and their support partners. This award-winning technology, using evidence-based research is driving change to reduce caregiver stress, support care teams, and reduce out-of-pocket healthcare costs.
MapHabit is supported by an excellent team. I have a lot of respect for the good work that they are doing and I'm excited to see what they do next! Thank you, Matt, for the great conversation and for creating an innovative platform.
