App to help start conversations with Dutch people with dementia by talking about their favourite things.
“The app 'That is me' helps you to start a conversation with someone with dementia. Are you not sure what to talk about? With the app you always have a topic at hand that evokes positive memories. Together with family and friends you collect topics of conversation that affect your loved one. Add images and videos to personalize the story. Get ideas from the sample topics and videos…
…It is more difficult for people with dementia to start a conversation. Healthcare workers, family and friends do not know everything about your loved one. With beautiful moments, positive memories and favorite music, everyone always has something that helps in contact with your loved one…
…By sharing the app with family, friends and healthcare workers they can also use the images and stories. In this way, everyone involved gets to know your loved one even better. Also browse the sample topics and videos. Talk about sports, holidays or music from back then.”Alzheimer Nederland, the Dutch patient charity which developed the app | https://bit.ly/3t4QBdQ

App and VR game designed to crowdsource baseline data of normal ageing navigation skills to aid dementia research.
“People with dementia can face real challenges with navigation, and it’s a problem that can occur early on in the condition. However, we still don’t have reliable data on how navigational abilities can change in the healthy brain across life.
Playing the game for just a few minutes will provide this completely anonymous data to help improve our understanding of navigational cognition. We’ll create a benchmark to help determine what goes wrong in the brain for people with dementia.
Alzheimer’s Research UK is helping support the analysis of the data the game generates, which could pave the way for improved approaches to early disease detection, in turn helping improve people’s chance of benefiting from new or existing treatments earlier.”Alzheimer’s Research UK, the charity involved in developing the app and analysing the resulting data. | http://bit.ly/2Nwel3X
