In-Home Dementia Intervention, a program under the direction of Dr. Robin Green and Dr. Kathy McGilton at Toronto Rehab.

The Schroeder Brain Institute will help to deliver new and innovative clinical approaches through the use of artificial intelligence, smart home systems, advanced sensors and robotics in rehabilitation. For patients with dementia, whose progression may be rapid or measured, this adaptability is essential. The Brain Institute will also test the efficacy of smart home systems and advanced sensors to help predict how these therapies may be adapted over time.

Beyond these existing initiatives, the Institute’s national reputation as a nexus for health innovation will create a wealth of opportunities moving forward. To build Canada’s pipeline of health innovators, The Schroeder Brain Institute will also create and implement health innovation education and leadership programs. These programs will be delivered through a variety of vehicles, including interdisciplinary university undergraduate and graduate classes, presentations for health-system leaders and online webinars reaching stakeholders across the country.
