The new Australia app that can help people living with memory loss


A new app has been released that can help people living with memory loss from anywhere in the world so they can catch up on things like reminders, birthdays, messages and other diary events.

The Memory Helper app is designed to help carers communicate with family members or clients suffering from memory loss.

The app, which was developed in Australia, allows the carers to control a tablet or iPad located in the care receiver’s home remotely to provide reminders and alerts for upcoming events and messages.

This way the care receiver can simply glance at the screen after hearing a notification to see new reminders and messages.

And all this is controlled through the carer’s smartphone using the Memory Helper app.

The app was built to reduce the carer’s burden while at the same time easing feelings of confusion and isolation through its reminders.

It also decreases the need for repeated communication from the care receiver and helps them remember important day-to-day tasks as well as keeping them up-to-date on events that are relevant to them.

Memory Helper provides peace of mind and reassurance to both the caregiver and care receiver as the messages and reminders complement the care that is already being delivered.

Memory helper is a free download and available for a seven day free trial through the Apple Store and the Google Play Store.

After the free trial the cost is $9.99 per month without any lock-in contract and can be cancelled at any time.

Memory Helper also sells tablets ($199)  and and viewing stands ($15)to make it easier to use the app.
