Date:9/16/2009

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Dakim Inc. announced today that AmericanWay, a senior living provider with seven homes on four campuses, has become the first provider in Wisconsin to adopt the Dakim(R) BrainFitness(TM) System company-wide to provide daily cognitive stimulation to community residents.

AmericanWay began using the Dakim system at its Harbor Suites community in Madison in May, and recently installed additional units at its remaining single-family ranch-style homes for dementia and frail elderly care in Portage and Randolph, Wisconsin.

The Dakim system is now used by 300 communities in the U.S., making it the #1 choice for dedicated cognitive stimulation among senior living providers. Users include independent retirement, assisted living and skilled nursing communities, adult day care centers and senior centers.
