Amazing App!!!


A family member of mine was unfortunately diagnosed with Alzheimers about one year ago. Dementia advisor helped me in ways no other tool was able to. The scenario based training was so useful and taught me ways to deal with day to day challenges of dealing with the disease like I never knew how before. Thank you Dementia Advisor!!!!

Great app

It is nice to find information that is really helpful presented in such a clear way. I really like that I can trust the information because it comes from experts in the field.



Finally got around to installing your dementia app and I am so impressed. It is so user friendly and all encompassing. I have passed it on to my two nieces as my eldest sister is suffering with dementia. A wonderful resource. Congratulations and thank you.
