Smartphone app can help people living with dementia boil a kettle
Publication date: 18 June 2019
A smartphone app which can help people with dementia to carry out everyday tasks like boiling a kettle, has been awarded funding by the UK's leading dementia charity to bring the product to market.
The 'How do I?' app works by flashing up 'how to' videos when a user's phone scans an object. The videos not only provide prompts of daily routines - such as how to make a cup of tea or take a bath - but can also remind people with dementia of forgotten memories, with loved ones able to record an explanation of a photo, and the memory it captures.
