I rarely go off topic on this blog but in honor of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month 2017 I wanted to share a new product I came across. RecallCue is an application that turns any tablet into a connected day clock. Day Clocks are a valuable tool for people suffering from dementia or mild cognitive impairment (MCI). In addition to the current time, these clocks will typically display additional information such as day of week or Morning, Afternoon, Night, to help orient the person using it. RecallCue builds on this and offers an accompanying app for family members and caregivers. With this app events, reminders, and photos can be sent to the tablet and will be displayed base don the schedule provided.
It’s great to see technology being used to help enrich the lives of those in need.
