The Dementia-Friendly Home app is designed by Dementia Australia to help individuals, carers, family members adapt or design a home for a person living with dementia. You are placed in a virtual home where you can discover how to make a home more suitable for people living with dementia. You can explore each room at your own pace and interact with objects which allows you to immediately discover the impact a simple modification may have to improving quality of home life. As you interact with the app, you can adjust or change elements within the home. You are able to review different options that reflect positive, negative or neutral outcomes. For each object, you can review the related principles which facilitate your learning and understanding. You can also save your progress, for ongoing use. The application is based on dementia-enabling environment principles (DEEP). It was originally funded by Commonwealth-State Funded Home and Community Care Program. The most recent update is funded by Gaudry Gift at the APS Foundation. For more information about Dementia Australia, please visit www.dementia.org.au

To date, thousands of users have completed over 110 million exercises using Constant Therapy. BENEFITS • Practice speech, language, cognition, memory, reading, attention and comprehension skills anytime, anywhere • Choose your recovery goals and we’ll deliver personalized tasks to help you get there • See your progress in real time on your performance dashboard • Access a library of evidence-based exercises developed by neuroscientists and clinicians • Get the most out of Constant Therapy with one-on-one help from Customer Support specialists • Try before you subscribe with a 2-week free trial • Pair the app with cognitive and speech therapy you’re already doing in the clinic (even add your clinician so they can monitor your progress) The Science Behind Constant Therapy: Constant Therapy was designed by scientists at Boston University and has won awards from the American Stroke Association and AARP. The clinically-proven app is recommended by speech language pathologists, neurologists and occupational therapists. In a recent study of post-stroke rehabilitation practices published in Frontiers in Neurology, outcomes were compared among 3,686 patients who used tablet-based therapy at home independently and those who completed the same therapy in a clinic under the guidance of a clinician. The study found tablet-based home users mastered skills in a shorter time and practiced therapy more frequently than clinic users. Nearly one third (29%) of users who made gains were 71 years old or more, and the oldest user was 97 years old.* Using Constant Therapy - Try before you subscribe with a free 14-day trial - Users can choose from two subscription plans: $24.99 per month or $249.99 per year.

GreyMatters: Beyond Dementia

Price: 0.0
Version: 1.0.6

Description:
GreyMatters is an interactive life storybook app for the tablet that improves quality of life for people with dementia and their caregivers. Through visual reminiscence, paired with music & games, the app helps older adults and families preserve yesterday's memories, as well as share today’s joyful moments. With a strong belief that people with dementia are "still here," GreyMatters taps into the abilities that remain to keep individuals engaged and connected. Inspired by time spent with my late grandmother, Frieda, who suffered from vascular dementia, GreyMatters is built on the activities that worked best to draw out her long term memory and spirit, and have worked for many others as well. These activities include: hearing stories from one's early life, looking through old family photos, and listening to music from one's youth. Reminiscence therapy and life story work are powerful tools used in dementia care that can help to improve quality of life for both memory-impaired individuals and their caregivers. APP FEATURES: • CREATE A PERSONALIZED LIFE STORYBOOK: Customize "My Life" story pages for your loved one, filled with long term memories from his/her life. Upload your own family photos, along with simple text & voice narration, to evoke memories from younger years & foster communication. • RECORD & SHARE NEW MEMORIES: Instantly capture special moments that occur while using the app together – whether a sparked memory or a smile. Share these “I Remember” videos with family members on the spot. • REFLECT ON THE WORLD: Look through pre-loaded "My World" story pages filled with universal content that appeals to your loved one's interests based on generation – such as entertainers, films, history & pop culture from the 1930s, 40s & 50s. Additional themes available within the app. • LISTEN TO MUSIC & PLAY GAMES: Create custom music playlists from your iTunes library for your loved one to enjoy while viewing story pages. Music can be an incredibly powerful tool in drawing out long term memories. In addition, play a game of memory cards together featuring familiar content from your loved one's life. • CREATE MULTIPLE PROFILES: GreyMatters works well in both a private setting as well as a larger care facility because you can create individual profiles for each person in your care. Each user's personalized story pages and all other content will be saved for later use. • COLLABORATE WITH FAMILY (NEW!): This new version of GreyMatters allows multiple family members to log in to the same account for their loved one. This allows for easier collaboration among family members, especially those in different locations, for whom caregiving can be very stressful. • SUBSCRIPTIONS: Along with family sharing & other updates, the new version of the app offers 3 different subscription plans: $4.99/month: single profile $19.99/month: 2-9 profiles $49.99/month: 10+ profiles, geared more toward institutions. All content previously available for purchase is now free with a subscription. • Payment will be charged to iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase • Subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period • Account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period, and identify the cost of the renewal • Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user's Account Settings after purchase • Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication, where applicable Privacy Policy https://www.greymatterstous.com/privacy-policy Terms & Conditions https://www.greymatterstous.com/terms-of-use We hope that you enjoy using this app with your loved one or person in your care, and that it helps you experience many more joyful moments together.
