Date:9/1/2009

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- If the favorite senior in your life is beginning to worry about memory loss and dementias such as Alzheimer's disease, the 'Give Thanks for Loved Ones' Brain Health Contest sponsored by Dakim, Inc. and AlzheimersWeekly.com offers a chance to allay those fears. To coincide with both Thanksgiving and Alzheimer's Awareness Month, five individuals 65 or older will be selected to receive a $2,500 Dakim BrainFitness System free of charge including a year's worth of activity updates. Entry deadline is November 5, 2009.

Just download the entry form at www.dakim.com or www.AlzheimersWeekly.com and write an essay of up to 500 words telling why your nominee deserves a proactive strategy to defend himself or herself against the ravages of brain aging. How will Dakim BrainFitness help your parent or loved one? How will it help you be a better caregiver? What specific problems are prompting you to seek brain training for your father, mother, wife, husband, sister, brother or other family member or friend?

Dakim BrainFitness systems will be awarded to the five nominees with the most compelling reasons to adopt a dementia-fighting routine. Select entries will also be posted on a special Dakim forum on AlzheimersWeekly.com to enhance the support that the website provides to families confronting dementia.

Dakim BrainFitness is the first product designed specifically to help seniors preserve their brain health and the most widely adopted product of its kind in senior living communities across the country. Each laptop-sized Dakim unit comes pre-loaded with entertaining multimedia brain games with the look and feel of a TV game show. Answers are given simply by touching the screen, with no keyboard or mouse required.

The system offers different activities designed for users ranging from normal brain function to moderate dementia. It also self-adjusts in real time based on user performance, increasing or decreasing difficulty levels within a given exercise. Activities are played in 20-minute sessions and automatically updated online every few days.

The Dakim approach is based on 20 years of medical research demonstrating that consistent, long-term cognitive stimulation can help fight the threat of dementia.

Essays and entry forms can be submitted online at www.dakim.com/thanksgivingcontest or mailed to 'Give Thanks for Loved Ones Contest' c/o Dakim, Inc., 2121 Cloverfield Blvd., Suite 205, Santa Monica, CA 90404.
