Helping Those with Alzheimer’s Remain Independent Longer

November 20, 2014

New funding helps advance OU research aimed at improving cognitive function

A new grant will help advance research at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center aimed at helping individuals with Alzheimer’s retain their independence longer.

Alzheimer’s affects 60,000 Oklahomans, a number that is projected to grow by more than 25 percent in the next decade. 

Now, the Alzheimer’s Association has awarded almost $100,000 to the OU College of Allied Health. The grant funds a new phase of research into a method known as Skill-building through Task-Oriented Motor Practice or STOMP, a non-drug therapy that showed promise in earlier research in preserving cognitive function in people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. It is one of only three non-medication studies awarded grants by the Alzheimer’s Association this year.
