Man develops digital memory aid to help his mother-in-law who has dementia

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2018-02-26 10:10

About the solution

Dani created this solution after seeing his family struggling while taking care of his mother-in-law, who has dementia.

"For the last 4 years our extended family has been caring for my mother-law who suffers from dementia. I witness every day the challenges my mother-in-law and the family face. On the one hand even the most basic things, such as knowing what day of the week or time of day, can't be taken for granted. On the other hand the reality of life and geography don't allow for everyone to have the level of communication and involvement they would like", he explained.

RecallCue allows family members and patients to stay connected with a loved one, even from remote locations. It allows the users to share photos and videos and to have a calendar with reminders and a day clock, which helps plan their day and tasks.

Dani is aware that this tool won't cure or slow down the effects of dementia. It also only useful if the patient is in early stages or pre-diagnose.

The inventor created his own company with his business partner Ephraim Tabackman.
