Understanding The Problem

  • Patients range across all ages and ethnicities, however, the majority of patients in the medical system are elderly.
  • Patients frequently have physical and cognitive disabilities. What is also overlooked is the alarmingly high rate of depression and anxiety in patients that need extended care.
  • Hospital staff are generally already overwhelmed with their medical responsibilities and do not have much time to socially visit the patients or to host extracurricular activities even though they would love to.
