Life saving resource!

I found this app when desperate for any help to cope with and understand a parent I had always found difficult. With new onset of early dementia I had to learn how to better communicate with them to be heard and understood knowing they forget simple stuff 10 seconds after hearing.
Dementia Advisor offers appealing, highly effective instruction and sensitivity training through realistic everyday scenarios. Typical situations use real-life dialogue and require text input to coach users in responses that work with dementia sufferers. The interactive approach and progressive scenarios are impressive for the range of experiences covered, and the regular opportunity to repeat key lessons that are often recommended.
Also appreciate the diversity of representation. Dementia affects everyone regardless of race, an inclusivity well captured by the many faces of this wonderful app. THANK YOU!

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.
