Summary

Aimed at the caregivers of people living with Alzheimer’s disease. A ‘Support’ section offers practical advice on many of the daily problems faced by carers of people with Alzheimer’s, and supplies answers to questions that include: How to deal with the loss of memory of the loved one? How to react when faced with fears and obsessions? What to do in case of aggressive reactions? How to act when taking care of hygiene? A ‘Quiz’ section allows the user to find general information about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. A ‘Pronto Alzheimer’ icon puts the user in touch with a Federazione Alzheimer Italia telephone informational ‘hot line’.

Reviews

Reviewer: Federazione Alzheimer Italia (AI) [Alzheimer’s Federation of Italy], Italy
Review: “The Federazione Alzheimer Italia—which, for nearly 20 years, has provided support, information and advice to all requesting them—has created this new tool, the ‘Alzheimer App’, to help the growing number of people with Alzheimers’s (including young people), and their carers. The app is an information tool; it is interactive, user friendly, and is updated constantly.”
